hand held...but yes, I do know too bright in that sun

A great day with fellow EPZers at Barn Owl Centre

Two jaw dropping ornithological compositions Lillian, each as good as the other. However I do feel that image two is slightly more dramatic and thus more appealing. Superb as always.

The outstretched wings give an excellent composition but v1 has an intensity about it that makes it my favoured one. The eyes have it Grin.


(weather permitting, should be okay for LC)
