    Went to the zoo earlier this week and in the bird sanctuary I found this owl looking very "lonely". I almost missed him because he blended in with the branches and surroundings so well. He's the only bird that would sit still long enough for me to capture. C/C welcome & thanks for looking!

    Nice capture. Could use a little warming of the colours I think. Great to know that you remember the framing. Good work Steve.

    Now Spacenut, that is very good considering the difficult lighting in the sanctuary. Not to mention the plexigalss. Now, you keep up the good work. Good job.........

    Thanks for the comments & yes, Scooter, it was a little difficult shooting thru plexiglass & the lighting conditions. I think I just a bad day of shooting altogether.

    Well, to me this owl does not look scary and certainly not like it might cause nightmares ... the situation might have been a nightmare, lightwise and all, from what I hear, but you seem to have done well under the circumstance.

    Most of all this owl looks SMALL to me for an owl.
    Is it as small as I think it might be?

    i knew a girl named tawny once . . . she looked much better than the owl though. . .

    haha, anyways i had to take her picture through plexiglass as well (really kidding about that part) and its tough. it always warps the image somehow and leaves you with a less than evenly sharp photograph. good try though

    Thanks for the comments. It boosts my morale for photography. Some pictures don't always turn out the way we like under adverse conditions, but I like to try anyway. Once again, thanks!
