I thought I would keep on the theme of Owl's for another upload and hope your not getting too bored with them. This time a Tawny Owl.
Many thanks for all the comments and clicks on my previous uploads, it's the one thing keeping my spirits up.
Have a great weekend and lets hope the weather isn't so bad that you can't get out with your camera's.
Best wishes,
Steve.

Great Owl portrait Steve. Looking at this shot its easy to see how they got the nickname ' Wise '. Although I am informed they are in fact quite stupid !!!

I dont think I could ever tire at looking at owls. They have a special significance in our family, and as a consequence, we have shelves full of books, trinkets and ornaments devoted to the owl. Smile So its a pleasure to view your image of them Steve.. beautifully taken Smile
