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.
