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.

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?

A rather snooty looking owl Ronnie. Smile

I prefer v2 with the eyes wide open.
Both well taken.

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.

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

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
