A late and quick upload tonight. A Long Eared Owl just about to take flight focused on a tasty morsel. I softened it and tried to give it a sense of movement, I'm not sure it works though. Well if it bombs, it does.
Mny thanks for all the C&C's on my Polecats, very much appreciated. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
Steve.

It's technically a very clever image Steve and I see where you're going. A good sharp face and the blur creates a great sense of movement.
