I found the title amusing, I think we are going down a path of worrying about what others think when they do not worry! I worked in a factory with 80 blokes and 6 women, I thought women wanted to be noticed, they spend hours and tons of money making themselves look good, then you have to worry, will they bawl you out or claim sexual harassment when you notice a new hair style or a nice dress that obviously makes them feel good about themselves. I actually asked one of the ladies if they would be offended if I said they looked nice today etc and they said they would be delighted someone noticed. Who knew?
On topic excellent shots folks, I have seen owls around locally but not a hope of catching one when I have a camera!
I certainly meant no offense with the thread title, I was just having fun, but I can change it if people feel it goes too far. I think most people, male and female, would find it at least somewhat funny, but alas we do live in a PC age, and I could be wrong.
Anyways, the thread has turned out better than I had even expected. You have all put my work to shame - which was my hope - these shots are blowing me away. I count myself lucky to have even gotten photos of these reclusive and camouflaged creatures, and the photos you're all sharing are really amazing! Thank you for posting and I look forward to seeing more and possibly sharing more if I come across more owls.
