The owl was trying to hypnotize me. Just managed to take this shot before I fell in a deep sleep.

What a pose, Pedro... how tiny those legs ;o)).
Sharpness is what it should be, nice comp too with the wings in the diagonal. I love those eyes!
Well done, TFS

Great shot with an exceedingly cute subject, nicely shallow depth of field and excellent focus on the eyes. At f/160 one can still see some movement in the eyes, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Your model certainly gives it all for this shot.

Hi Pedro

I like the sharpness and direct eye stare here. The tilted wings, fully stetched but at level is a good pov. Well done. TFS

Hi Pedro,
I love to see the sharpness and the look of the owl.

Excellent shot Pedro. Good even colour, feather detail shows up well but those eyes are magnificent. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘North Esk Views’
