Just a rework of a shot taken about a year ago of Molly, the Great Grey Owl from the Hawk Conservancy.

I have been finding it very hard to get any time recently, but hope to be able to get and view your shot's tonight, and maybe get out with the camera over the weekebd to get some more material myself (weather permitting!!).

Hope you are all well.

Phil

Molly has such wonderful markings and the white "whiskers" make her look so intelligent, no wonder people think of owls as being wise...and those eyes! You've certainly done her proud with this magnificent portrait.
