I love the composition and the arched wings certainly give the Owl and mean and moody countenance.

I do have to say though that I feel that the point of focus is slightly ahead of the birds eyes as they are just a little bit soft (the grass in the left foreground does seem sharper than the bird's eyes)

Still a good photo though Smile

Nicely composed and the colours are nice. I reckon it might have got a Premier Award had it been in focus.
Well done on the HC.
