"Intent" stamped all over this image of that owl: the high ISO has allowed a very fast shutter thus capturing all the detail in this fast action shot, Richard.
Top notch bird photography.
Just wish I could take such........I do better with subjects that move a touch slower, preferably not at all.......WinkWinkWink.

Richard, apart from the fact that this is a superbly taken shot demonstrating a high level of skill, I find it hillarious, those feet................. As Ron says, 'Intent' stamped all over them, sorry, should have said tallons; also as Ron says I am more into the sedate side of life, but I am envious................... These have been absolutely superior or as they say round your way 'Bostin Our Kid'

If there was a better image taken on the day I can't wait to see it, this really is a master class Richard.

I have used up my user award today but its not far off midnight so watch this space.

First I saw the beautiful owl headed right for you and then I saw the gallery of awards and medals and I thought , no wonder. How often do you see an eye level direct rush like that? Almost never. This image deserves awards! TG
