I'm not normally a bird photo expert, but this is excellent to my eyes. Good in-flight capture, nice and crisp on the owl - very good detail and dof. But it's the light - that is superb: coming through the wing feathers and hitting the foliage on the ground.

As Anne says, it's the light, through the wings and on the vegetation. And light is what it's all about.
