I'm suprised I'm the first to comment on this!!!! This is a spectacular shot of an owl :o)!!! I don't think I've ever seen an owl on the ground. They're always in a tree or something off the ground. The eyes REALLY stand out here and the background coloring is perfect. Great capture!! #401234

Tom, WOW!!! Your photography is just amazing. This picture takes my breath away. I wish I had better words to describe how wonderful this picture is. You are amazing. You are the kind of photographer, when I look at your work I say to myself "I wish I could take pictures like that." Inspiring! Thank you. #2485942

Love the photo and love the creature. I use to spend winters in FL at Pompano Park Race Track working with Standardbred race horses. There was a burrow of owls on the infield of the race track and I use to get to see them almost daily. Never did get a good shot of them. #2721440

This was taken last week on Cape Coral. The eyes are on one of the "third lines". I believe that this works with the owl centerd from left to righ because of the "in you face" nature of the expresion and pose.
