Stellar Owl shot Colleen , certainly can recognize the same barn Owl face. Wonderful colours indeed , very cool to see an Owl unique to your part of the world
Only suggestion would be to tone down the Bokeh slightly. My award to follow when I am loaded back up again
Cheers Walt
A terrific image and a well timed shot, excellent photography, Colleen.
