Perfectly exposed, Sharon! This is an excelent profile, sharp and clear, with a great look-'em-in-the-eye composition. I'd like to see more EXIF data to give some insight into how you did it, but otherwise your note is useful, and adds to our knowledge of this beautiful owl.

hi Sharon,
A nice portrait capture of this beautiful Siberian Owl. Good sharp details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.
