Continuing with my theme, this is a female Snowy Owl, flying against an unlit hedge. Needing to stop down to preserve some detail in the whites has made the tree line and hedges seem even darker than they were. Needed a 1.4x extender for this, to get a decent size in the frame.

Excellent composition and detail / exposure and also well done for giving a little insight for newer members.

Actually having looked again - it is rare for me to not find something that could be improved upon (with my own images and other members) so stick my UA on your wall with that of Dinky
