An Eagle owl of such beauty. I think this is a Bengal Eagle Owl but I could be mistaken, if anybody knows better please put me out of my ignorence. The sun was quite low and bright so I had a difficult time trying to decide on what to set the camera for to get the best from his beautiful plumage. I think this hasn't turned out too bad. I hope you like him.
Again many thanks for all the C&C's on my uploads. I am having to click and run sometimes because of other commitments but hope to be able to view for longer soon.
Best wishes for a lovely weekend,
Steve.

Thanks for all your kind comments. With regard to the loss of feet and tail, it wasn't cropped this way but unfortunately i was too close to the subject (even at 150mm) and as with most times you don't have time to back off and still get the shot. I agree, that it would make a much better photo if it were complete but I would rather have a half decent shot than none at all. This is not an excuse merely an explanation.
Many thanks,
Steve.
