This owl was sitting on my son's hand. You paid 1 to hold him, proceeds to a barn owl charity. It was taken at the Butterfly Park, Long Sutton, Lincolnshire.

Like the detail on the feathers. However so many barn owl pics out there that they really have to be exceptional to stand out. The owl looks a bit dull on my screen. Perhaps some off camera fill flash or a reflector would have emphised the owl more and given some sparkle to the eye. On the plus side nice and close, nice and sharp.

Thank you Ian Mike & Neil. I agree about the flash, but I think they requested that you didn't so as not to scare him. Looks much better when not compressed though. Thanks,

Some very nice detail in the shot - well taken, especially given the limitations of the event mentioned in your earlier response.


P.S., what is a Mandela, as mentioned in your comment on one of my images?

Thanks David, a Mandala (my spelling error) is a circular image used for meditating. This site may give you some ideas.
