Sitting Proud

By csurry  
Probably my favourite image from the weekend, can't really explain why.

Not an intended branch for the owl to perch on but as I explained in an earlier shot this really is a self-posing owl. So even though it may not look the most appropriate branch, she just made herself comfortable (and hid the jesses).

Had to do a bit of work as there was some very OOF lichen bottom left, but hopefully not too noticeable.

Size issues should all now be sorted and this should now be viewed as I intended on saving.

Good clean eye reflections and alert pose Cheryl.

Thanks everyone.

Really needs to be viewed large to get the full impact, though you can probably see my dodgy PS work then.

Have a good Easter everyone. Don't eat too many chocolate eggs - I know I won't be.

Perfect background, but could you clone out the owl shaped thing in the middle? You really do need more chocolate Cheryl, I made a promise to those nice (hungry) puddy tats on Sat.

LOL - I've never heard of a 'self-posing Owl' But if there ever was one, this is it.

Hopefully the fact that she is so willing to pose is a sign that she is comfortable with what is happening.

Thanks everyone. Only a few more shots of her I promise.
