I don't care if it's wild or captive Ron, this is an excellent composition, a beautiful eye and super feather detail together with the burrow being included in the shot, had I not already given my UA away already today I would have given it, excellent in all respects and one of your best shots IMHO, looks like a winner.....hope I'm right Wink

Geoff has summarised things so well already and I would endorse his comments in full: lovely shot, the owl making sure he's not spotted before disappearing into the burrow.

Superbly detailed capture and composition, Ron. Wonderful pose, eye contact and plumage patterning/textures. Congratulations on a very well deserved HC and awards - you would have had mine too but it wasn't available to give. However, it is there in spirit Wink
