Northern Hawk Owl with Vole

I wish the sticks did not cover his head and the Vole. I'm sure some of you folks who are good at PS could remove them but that's the way it looked and was photographed.

Awesome shot Tom. I for one would try to remove the stick with content aware, not that I'm that good with PS.
Nice capture bravo!!!
Nature at work
Nicely done Tom.

Great shot of predator and prey. I like the as shot image. Nice work.
It's still fantastic Tom! Sometimes you just can't remove the sticks.

I like the twigs in front, shows him as he was in the wild.. Great shot.
Gorgeous, luv the environment in this shot Tom! V
Great image, Tom. It is a winner as is. WEll done.
This is a terrific capture! What's a little stick? I sometimes spend hours removing lines and what have you from pictures and then wonder why I went to all the trouble? If you hadn't mentioned it I probably wouldn't even have noticed it. I was more interested in his eyes and mezmerized gaze. \/
Superb this picture.
Excellent control of dof.
Superb capture for both of you, Tom! A beautiful NHO! ~V~
Outstanding shot. The detail is superb. Voted.
Great one Tom, the poor little guy was still open his eyes...V
Well caught Tom. Nature at it's best. Good eyes on both subjects.

Yes, it is too bad about the branches but that is what was there and nature seldom cooperates fully with us photogs. Regardless, the image is a tremendously wonderful representation of the natural world at work. Thank you for sharing this. Voted
OK Tom, now I'm really jealous!! This is my favorite shot from your outstanding collection. Stunning composition, tack sharp, and beautiful color. I bow to the master!!!
