    this owl was patient enough so i could get close.

    i had to do some cloning to remove branches.
    any thoughts?

    I like it. Look at them big claws that owl has. Bet those would hurt if he attacked! :)

    What kind of lens did you use?

    VERY NICE,,I like the perch branch at a diagonal, it makes a strong statement.
    The beak looks a little smudged, and on my (uncalibrated) pc, I see a slight yellow hue. I find it Interesting that the barred owl has such dark eyes as compared to the bright yellow of all the other species of owls.

    thanks guys, i used a 18-55 canon lens at 55.

    i don't know how that smudged beak came about, i think it's simply out of focus.
    it was a bright day with light reflecting of the snow, perhaps that's why the dark eyes?

    thanks wolverinepwnes.

    here's another barred owl, with a flash this time and same thing, it let me get close enough so i could use the 18-55mm.
    it was snowing at the time and the flash reflects on the flakes.
