Wonderful shot, made me smile, I know they don't have arms but in my mind this owl has his hands clasped behind his back, the headmaster look.
He's forgotten his car keys.Tongue

...what a terrific shot..well deserving of all the accolades, but once again we have that anomaly that I find strange. can a shot receive all these awards but not be "highly commended" ?
MikeRC, I still don't understand anything about Ephotozine, hehehe !

Looking at 'Photos of the Week' and found this! Totally wonderful! Well done.

I showed my husband the UAs and he asked who won them - not me says I. Just a derisive sound that said 'exactly'!
