Fantastic shot,I`m still looking for this owl for my collection.
Beautiful! And cute look as well.
Wow! What a regal looking owl. Absolutely stunning shot! I'm so envious of your proximity to this amazing animal.
Perfectly perched and photographed! V
Amazing capture Tom - it looks like you have his attention! Janet
Good shot, Tom!
Beautiful. Excellent shot, Tom. vote
Jim, I think there might have been a slight wind that ruffled the breast feathers. At 1/45th it would not take much.
One of my favourite owls , wonderful shot Tom!!! V
Tom, as others have said this is a beautiful shot, the face and eyes gazing at you are mesmerizing. The thing I can't figure out is that according to the exif you have a new camera? Your 20D shots are always tack sharp for the full body of the birds, but on this one the breast does not really look all that sharp? At f8 I would think the full owl would be sharp. Am I missing something here, or is it just the difference between a 1.3 and a 1.6 crop body? I hope I'm not sounding critical, just curious, I've thought about the 1dmk2 for the extra AF points and tracking moving objects so I'm just wondering?
Fantastic shot, V.
Wonderful capture, Tom. Great pose! V
