I often come back to this photo, the little owl is so engaging, almost performing for the photographer.
How lucky and skilful to have captured this thrilling moment.
Amazing photograph! Nature is so beautiful and you captured a spectacular moment. The shape, colors and texture of the owl are gorgeous, but to capture the one open eye (and so sharp) just brings the whole image to a higher level. The background so clean with the same shades of the owl and the branch….perfection!
Change "Photo of the day" in "Awesomeness of the day", seriously, this is a pleasure to watch every day.
What a great artistic eye to have firstly seen this little owl and then to have been quick
enough to capture this exquisite moment of beauty and comedy. A truly fabulous photo.
I live on our family's farm, and am surrounded by woods. I have owls talking close by every night. They are amazing birds. I love this photo! So much character!
