Dave {WhiteRose1} said of my previous owl snap (The Gaze) that "two eyes would have been perfect".
So, here we are, Dave, this one is for you ......... 2 eyes as suggested ........... OK ?
Closed admittedly, but still 2 eyes .......... that do? ........... No? .......... Oh, well, I'll bung in V 2 just for youWink.

My thanks to all who commented on I Won't Mooooooove, Don't Make Me.

I guess Carol needs some more shut eye here Ronnie!
But I think that you have really captured this owl so beautifully
but must say V2 is quite amazing! with those
eyes and plumage details captured

V2 with the open eyes is a smasher, but there is something very appealing about your V1, though perhaps just put up for a joke, I love it because it's different.
