THIS image rocks. It may be one of my favorites of yours. after seeing other Barn Owls I agree, this one has the best markings. I have even searched online galleries but this one is superior. I like the black BG and the sharpness. The ridge around the face is spectacular. I am amazed by the soundless flight of these birds. I guess the hissing makes up for it!
Great job, I love it.

WE used to have a 400 acre farm and we had a couple of these owls who lived in the barn I was always very impressed by the beauty and the size of them. This shot is really marvelous a beautiful bird. Owls are my favorite bird I have a collection of them all sizes and kinds thanks so much for sharing this with me and others.
The clarity in this image is amazing Scott. I like the diagonal composition too. I have a similar shot in my portfolio but it doesn't compare to the quality of this one. Great work.
btw...did you use a tripos or was it hand held?
