What more can I say about this one. I liked the expression and concentration of the owl on this one, as well as the colors and detail.

A very strong owl shot--this is hard to get and it's sharp. The background is not distracting--congratulations.

Thanks guys and thanks judges for your kind comments. I think the background even addes to the image, because it shows the natural habitat of the owl. Otherwise it would have looked fake I guess.

I am still impressed by the concentration and expression of the owl. Great animals and I am so happy could catch this one.
