Hello everyone,

Firstly may I take the opportunity to say a big 'thank you' to Keith (madgezer), for his Award for my Milky Button Park upload.

This image was taken last October at the Blakemere Owl Centre. I just wanted to capture the beautiful eyes on this creature. So I thought I would just crop it tightly around one eye and see how it would turn out.
Your comments and thoughts would be appreciated.

Thank you for all your support, votes, C&C's.

Best Wishes,

Bev Smile
