We were shocked at the way this owl was such a silent and majestic bird in its manner, its flight and in in its strike.
Lunch has no chance of survival.

What a magnificent animal and you have captured him beautifully.

Hi Steve,
That's another fine portrait of this owl. I like the POV and the natural pose of the bird of prey.
Perfect sharpness and a fine crop all presented in this lovely white frame.

Interesting lighting on this owl, which seems a figure of porcelain.


bom dia Steve,
Greetings for the capture of this Bird of Minerva, the goddess of wisdom.
Superb photo, one of your best.

Hi Steve, I like the dark eyes hiding in the white feathers. Two guesses what hes thinking about.. Fiona

A great capture of this beautiful bird, color tones are very pleasing and bird stands out well. Very clean. :)

Hi Steve, another of my favourite subjects....Owls.This is a beautiful study; the owls attention on something out of shot.
Excellent sharpness and natural colours.
The bokeh complements the main feature!
Tfs, regards Jean.
