A beautiful sunlit Tawny Owl, high up in an Oak tree. Not the usual close up bird portrait, shot and framed instead to give a sense of scale and habitat.

I know this will barely get noticed from the thumbnail but I like it. Thanks for looking!

I recall a similar shot, quite some time ago.
Was the bird nicknamed Horatio, or something like that?

Smashing image, I think I might play around with a few crops to somewhat improve the composition a little Matt as it just seems a little too central IMHO, but having said this it's still a cracker that has everything, right down to the snow on the branches of the tree....Cracking work mate!

Get it into this months EPZ winter competition, beats a boring old winter landscape any day Tongue

Thanks everyone Smile

It was Tiberius Adrian, same owl yes Smile

Central composition is deliberate Ade, liked how the branches spiralled out around the owl.

You did well to spot this owl as it blends in so well with its surroundings. The tree on its own would also make a great photographic subject because of the wierd and wonderful shape of its branches
