I guess Carol needs some more shut eye here Ronnie!
But I think that you have really captured this owl so beautifully
but must say V2 is quite amazing! with those
eyes and plumage details captured

From eight eyes in a spider to two eyes in an owl. A fine portrait of this beautiful bird.

Brilliant Ronnie. Looks as if you can touch them ! The eyes definitely have it.GrinGrinGrin#

2 wonderful shots Ronnie, love them both.
Am wondering if you have ever been to the raptor centre at Loch Lomond and if it is any good?

Two wonderfully captured images Ronnie!

A rather snooty looking owl Ronnie. Smile
Made me smile.
I prefer v2 with the eyes wide open.
Both well taken.

Both great captures Ronnie but I do like the "haughty" look in V1.
Blinking wonderful the inscrutable side of us all.

beautiful shots though in v2 he /she doesn't look too impressed with you
20 Sep 2012 9:59AM

Looks as though it is having a quiet snooze in V1 but certainly wide awake in V2. Two very good images Ronnie.

V2 with the open eyes is a smasher, but there is something very appealing about your V1, though perhaps just put up for a joke, I love it because it's different.

I was going to say....exactly what Irishkate said, never mind, you are a card though, Phil.

Two excellent shots Ronnie but my preference is for V2 with open eyes. The detail is as usual spot on as is your presentation.

Both shots are wonderful - but V2 is SUPERLATIVE!! Love it!! GrinGrin

I like the haughty look he's giving you in v1 and the manic stare in v2 where it looks like your camera clicking away has startled him and woken him from his slumber!Wink
