The Pittsburgh Zoo is one of only six major zoo and aquarium combinations in the United States. Located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania's Highland Park, the zoo sits on 77 acres (310,000 m2) of park land where it exhibits over 4,000 animals representing 475 species, over 70 of which are threatened or endangered. The zoo also participates in 64 Species Survival Plans. The Pittsburgh Zoo opened on June 14, 1898. (Wikipedia)

Hello Sandy,
The owl's eyes are absorbing. The tech settings chosen resulted in fantastic details and textures on its feathers. Reasonably noise free for a high ISO. Best regards...
