I love your poem, Callie! It's totally in the spirit of your post. It's really a fantastic image, strong by the eyes, soft by the feathers. Owl looks like like huddled in his environment. The essence of the nocturnal predator is very well conveyed. A rare shot.

This is a great nightshot, My experience with night shots is zero. I have try it before but had no succes. Well I am good to made good shot from owls in zoo. But in wild it is a dream. When I am fishing I enjoy the sound of an owl. Fantastic that sound. About the photo, great eyes, fantastic dof, and a great sharpnes, there is a fine balance in the photo. Erg goede foto Callie.

Great shot Callie! I dream to get one like this someday. Never could in the wild so far. The look is stunning. I think the impact is softened due to the oversize of this photo. We can see the pixels on his beak.

Aha, one with two eyes. Good mugshot Callie.
Well done under the circumstances, as you say, your high tech stuff are slow to boot up, the shot is a wee bit soft but the eyes are great
I need to give my Mother in Law the little poem! The type of life one leads can be seen in ones eyes. I like the eye contact here very much and the composition is excellent.
Very well done and thanks for posting

nice one Callie typical view of an owl peeping out from behind some thing.
Must admit saw the eyes and thought I know what this is, such a great little bird, so small and cute fit right in your hand they are so small.

I believe that the fear is the source of many superstitions, Callie, is owls frighten many people still. Yours does not frighten me with its funny wink. As your small poem shows it so well, we have to learn again a lot from animals.
If there is a bird to which one you could you identify, it is indeed this one, roguish! ;-)
An excellent post: picture, note and shooting details.
Thanks a lot!
Goede morgen Callie, ik moet altijd uw nota goed lezen en dit kleine versje vind ik persoonlijk zeer mooi, vooral mijn beste wensen voor 2005 Callie, en mag U veel mooie foto's maken dit jaar. Deze van de uil is weer prachtig, zijn die ogen zo rood in werkelijkheid Callie?
Hoe dan ook zeer mooi gedaan!

Your patience paid off Callie. Thank you for showing this terrific shot of a bird that many would never get to see otherwise.
Callie, who wrote the stanza featured on your note? I did enjoy it. Congratulations on your note.
Pretty red eyes. To me, even seem a little scary - which is also great.
I dared a little workshop. I hope you like it.
