Conventional wisdom is you've got to show the bird's eyes and preferably with a catch light in 'em or the photo is a failure.  In this case, I beg to differ.


Very nice shot Steven.

Its one of those shots I'd love to take but the incredible sharpness of the image actually makes the bird look a little sickly ... btw that's not meant to be offensive ... I like the awesome sharpness of the image.

Don't know if that Owl was sleeping or not, but he/she looks pleased about something ... reminds me of the old saying "the wise Owl". 8)

Lovely shots everyone, a pleasure to view.
