I really like this, Ludo! Yes, the wing tip is clipped, but the remainder off the image is breathtaking. Maintaining the sharp eye is critical, and the background complements the owl beautifully. Very well done!

Love that you can really feel the close presence of the owl-can almost feel like I'm there.
