A very strong owl shot--this is hard to get and it's sharp. The background is not distracting--congratulations. #8163017

mariette geest 11/24/2009 8:42:09 AM

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. #8163035
