An amazing capture of this owl, this shows how really large his wing span is. Colours, lighting and composition are excellent. The only thing that could have been better is if you were able to get a bit closer. Still a great shot.

Hi Kona

This is a truely magnificent in-flight shot!
The frontal POV here is amazing and it allowes a great view at this owl and it magnificent eyes. They really stand out very well and have a great contrast with the plumage.
Also teh DOF is outstanding, keeping all the edges of the bird in full focus, while blurring out the BG beautifully.
Splendid colors, spot-on exposure and brilliant coposition!

Bravo and TFS

A beautiful capture! Excellent timing to catch the open wings. Great DOF , good details and a nice blurred BG with lovely colors. TFS!

Hi kona ,
excellent shot with great details.
thanks for sharing
best wishes

Hi Kona,

The flight of this bird is amazing especially in the enviroment space that you have given it. Very nicely composed. :)
