Who woudnt be proud having captured such a amazing action shot and with lovely toppings of sharpness and BG.Very well done on this pic , i guess you must look back into your comp to search for such good shots which might have gone un noticed.Nothing more to say and give 10/10 on this pic.

So you have a lot of reasons to be proud of!
It's so good the way you froze the flight of this owl on this picture.
Excellent the exposure and the high shutter speed.
It's great the way the feathers are displayed and we can admire and enjoy them.
Besides all that, you did a very good composition with the subject and the beauty and colorful background got.
Congratulations and thanks for share.

This is an excellent picture. I love the clearly focused eyes with catch light. I am also surprised to note that the Canon 400 lens delivers such sharpness at its full aperture.

YOU SHOULD BE! It's a magnificent shot!
If i had this shot in my portofolio, i would definitely be amazed to as how i didn't post this until now :))
The details and pose of the owl are really fantastic and the composition managed here is outstanding - with plenty room in the direction of the movement.
The colors are also wonderful and superbly saturated and the exposure here is impeccable.
Just as you mentioned, the bokeh is terrific and it definitely pays off to have a long prime for ocasions like this - brilliant job! (i'm running out of adjectives here)
No wonder this is one of your favorite shots.
BRAVO for this splendor and TFS

This is a truly lovely shot Adam. I can see why you are so fond of it. You managed great panning and wonderful focus on the eye. As you said the out of focus background shapes and colors are really nice.
