Again another favourite, a European Eagle Owl. Such a beautiful bird and our largest Owl.

Outstanding shot Steve. The exposure shows the plumage perfectly and the close crop enforces great impact to the image.

Like Linda, (I am blaming her for my new expense of the 150-500mm Sigma!) now see also that you have the same Steve, and what a joy to use, although not tried much and today would have been ideal!! but hospital calls...and lighter than I thought too...a perfect example of a beautifully captured shot here, those eyes say it all!
