That's a super find, Carole, much more fun photographing than things steam-related Wink A great capture and presentation. Carol

The lighting is just perfect to show up the owl against the dark b/g, Carole, and the detail is immaculate.
Your Olympus Pen zoom delivering the goods OK.

What a beautiful barnowl portrait Carole, the feather details are wonderful and you've exposed this one perfectly. This is much better than anything Tomcat managed on his photography day at the Barn Owl Centre in Gloucester and he spent £70 for the privelege!Grin
