Never see an owl so closed! Does it actually have red eyes?! Love that look! Wonderful shot, Karen!

Thank you, Rita, Donna, Kristen, Robin and Pu, for your comments. Yes, Pu, her eyes are really that color. I was only about three feet away from her when this shot was taken. She was part of a bird exhibit at a Native American Festival. She just sat there on her perch, for everyone to see, free of any bars or cage.

What a marvelous close-up, Karen, you captured the fine detail beautifully here and that eerie phenomenon where the owl's eyes follow you at whatever angle you view him!
