300mm @ 1/125 - f/5.6
This is Emma, a barn owl. She lives at the Carolina Raptor Center. I found her to be really cute in her little barn. She was watching another person just off camera right and couldn't take her eyes off of him. It was a great photo moment.

Fascinating beauty on this creature! What a contrast to straight lines of human stuff.
Good photo, Greg.

Greg, I'm so glad you stopped by to comment on my orange tulip photo because it led me here to your gallery of wonderful raptor photos! That's something I long to do -- don't have the proper lens for it yet, I'm afraid, unless I can happen upon a raptor center like this. These are all wonderful, but this is definitely my favorite. Such a high-interest capture! You just want to stay in the photo trying to see what has captivated her interest! I agree with Douglas -- this has got to be a winner!

Thanks, Brian. I wish you could of made it there too. I was looking for you. It seemed as though Seppo and his wife were having a good time but I haven't seen any of his photos yet. I am looking forward to the Gallery for the Raptors. I just got my photos submitted on Friday. This one will be displayed forthe gallery and the auction. Looking forward to seeing more on your gallery...

Thank you for the nice comment Greg! Its been such a great month I know it will be a long long long time before I ever,if I ever do it again so that was nice. This photo was always one of my favorites! It reminds me of one I took of my son peeking around a red barn door even though this one is one thousand times cuter!! It is a very classy shot Greg! You should be proud of this one!! Take Care! Look forward to seeing more!
