A little bit of sunlight can go a long way to brighten up the colours, and speed up the camera. This owl was active for about 3 hours one day last week , and great fun shooting! Dodging all the people was difficult, but that is the reality of a popular owl in Ontario.
The a7r4 did a good job keeping up with the bird with most flight shots, still hoping for a software upgrade soon! The busy background is a bit disappointing, so regardless, I edited this shot since I like the flight pose with the wings down. Hopefully another chance soon.
