although not very colorful and dynamic, I love the expression of this tired young sparrow after his first flying lesson (which I loved to capture but missed :( )
Like the nice and furry look.

Here are three owls: an Eastern Screech Owl, a Great Horned Owl, and a Barred Owl.
Great owl shots - are they all wild?  If so, I'm extremely impressed.  If not, they are still beautiful photos, but I will know you, too, are a mere mortal.  I love owls, but they are so freaking hard to find out in the wild!  Here's my best owl shot to date - a very noisy little Barred Owl:

You guessed correctly - I'm a mere mortal. The owls were all residents at a bird rehabilitation facility and were willing to indulge four photographers by posing without complaint.

@mackguyver:  if you want to see a great in-the-wild owl shot, check this out:

The photographer, Ed Post, has many other great bird shots, but the owl shot is incredible!

And here's another Barred Owl - again at a bird rehabilitation center, although a different one from my earlier shots.

Wow! That is impressive. I wouldn't want to be a mouse in that scene.

I really admire those lucky souls who have the opportunity and stamina to trek around the world into the wild and take such amazing nature shots. I will have to be content to see it through their lens except for an occasional trip to a zoo. :)

Well done, Pugshot. Sharp with nice bokeh and the red berries really makes it interesting with more color.

Great shot!

In India there is a common insult dished out with the phrase "Ullu ke Patthe", the literal translation of which works out to "Owl's disciple". Owls are considered pretty dumb birds and the phrase "Ullu ke Patthe" is used to call someone an "Idiot". Most average Indians use this phrase a fair few times in a day!

Very few Indians can look at an owl shot without a chuckle.   

Cheers ... J.R.
