Very good composition for this cute Owlet with perfect perch and blue sky...just little bit of details in shadows will be better. tfs.

Good picture under the circumstances , the bright bg with bird bit under a shade ( no light directly falling on it ) is always difficult to shoot and you have done well. I also liked the way you have placed the subject in the frame

Hello Joy
