Hello Horia , A Beautifull shot , good sharpnes pov details eye contact and colours , it's a great horned owl , i have the same ,i think , Greetings Teunie , sorry my engels is not so good ,
I don't think i've ever seen such a stern expression on an animals face! Great details as usual, with a nice pose. I'm curious how you got such a great uncluttered background at a craft fair?

Beats me on the name of the owl, but it is a beautiful one. You've captured a beautiful pose, showing a stunning character. The lifting of th eyebrow is funny. Great colors and sharpness with perfect brightness in the eyes. Personally I rather see a more natural BG. But, you couldn't help it and with the DOF, you made it good.

I like very much your portrait of this owl.
A clean one, well exposed and focused, appropiate POV.
Their look is so intense and penetrating.
Good feather texture.
Congratulations and thanks for share,

My, my...aren't we inquisitive?? :)))))))
What a terrific pose! This owl looks so funny here with its "eyebrow" raised :)...it almost reminds me of Jim Carrey :))
Impeccable timing and POV, charming colors and very vine razor sharp details.
Bravo and TFS

whoooo,oui elle est tres belle.
les details sont tres presents dans le plumage netteté parfaite.
si je peux me permettre une remarque,j'en aurais fait un portrait pour eviter de voir qu'il s'agit d'un oiseau apprivoisé pour la fauconnerie.

Very clear photo -- the eyes are piercing! The bands on the leg have a really strange effect on me. I know that the owl flies but those bands plus the perch work against the freedom of the subject. It is a very effective portrait.

A strong glance from this mpressive bird!
Close-up work is well done, feather coat looks natural and with fine colours and details...
I will never enjoy seeing those guys tied up but I guess the purpose here is good...

My first reaction was to ask you to not tell this UHU abt. my lil squirrels! Then I read the Note, and smiled!!!
I felt less "owly", and started to admire the sharp detail!
The leather straps remind me of those the falkeniers in Arabia use.
Well done! Jay

I like this picture very much. You caught it in a superb pose. It's eyes remind me of an irritated cat at night. Well done.

Hello Karan! What an expression on this fellow's face! He's trying to look so sternly at you, but that cocked "ear" just makes me laugh. Marvellous colour and feather detail--great earth tones. Great POV. Well done! Thank you, Linda
