I like that natural b/g to the owl: OK, it's busy, but it just the sort of spot the owl might choose to sit and suss out what's going on around. Personally, and I don't mean to offend any, I prefer this sort of image to what I'd call "a bird on a stick" shot.
Excellent detail and you have captured that intense gaze that is so much a characteristic of the species.

Not a bird to be messed with!

Image is well composed, splendid detail.

Good one, Phil.

I do hope this is a rehabilitation centre, and not just a zoo, and that they let the birds go, unless they have been injured in some way...... A great photo indeed! Regards Martin

Apart from the bit of fencing, which could be in the wild as well, I find the background perfectly natural and perfectly acceptable for a bird that will try to be unseen in the daytime.
