Contrast and or saturation on the bird looks a little over done on my screen otherwise a cracking capture

The bird looks a little over sharpened, however this is still an excellent capture, better than any bird in flight image I've taken

Lovely to see them head-on in flight. The setting is good and natural, too.

I must say that the eyes are a little strange, however - maybe they seem a bit bright or saturated for the distance? Not sure.

First shot I remember seeing of an owl absolutely head-on. The forground grass just makes the composition for me.

Very nice, yet to turn up in my area which is not good.
They're normally about by now but it hasen't been cold enough up north or abroad to make them move to warmer areas.. :-(

Great capture.

Perfect eye detail.Nice job.
Wow! What a capture! Love the detail on the face.
First class.. excellent shot..!!!

Blown away by this one... A hundred times better than the usual captive bird shots.

You're the man. Get your personal details in to we see who you are.

All the Best.

agree with Tony...

This is either luck or skill or both Wink

As in the wild its a cracker and whipes most captive shots out the water.
