Another backyard bird, illustrating "The Rule of Thirds", the eyes are placed in one of the crossing grids that divide the picture on the rule of thirds.
Thanks to this Barred Owl for the cooperation.

Terrific owl portrait. Crisp facial features pop in the narrow dof. Wonderful light and superb background bokeh. Michael.
