Don't know if you are familiar with Bannerman & Lodge, but this straight out of one of their booksTongue

If it is any significance, I have only used that quote once before, during my time on EPZWink

Wow Ray this is superb mate, the owl really pops against that muted bg! You told me earlier that this is probably your best photo to date and i have to agree with you, so you'd better have my UA mate, well done!!
