hate to suggest it but are the eyes marginally softer than the beak?

otherwise, very well done - folk think it is easy to take captive animals, which may be true but there are a lot of hopeless images of captive out there. your high ISO, wide aperture and -EC offering you that relatively slow shutter suggest that the conditions were not 'ideal'

Very nice shot, Malcolm. Must agree his beak is the veriest tad sharper than his eyes though.

I have never heard of this species of Owl, i was thinking there must be a lot of different types in the world

A new variety to me but he's very appealing!

Lovely avian portrait, despite the fact that the POF does seem to be on the beak. Valid observations by Philhomer.
