Wow tom superb portrait and scene big vote
Even though there is less of the owl then usual, the composition for a wonderfully 'full' picture is achieved. The size of the tree stump helps to realize the true size of the bird.
I love the light on the moss and the texture of the wood. The bird seems subdued in the context of the 'bigger picture' he is part of.
so grave guy! Nice moment
