This owl gave me a number of different poses during the brief time she spent on the perch. I shot 30 images in silent mode and 27 of them were keepers. I particularly like this pose showing her top side plumage. Also note the detail of her facial hairs at this ISO.

Please click for uncompressed view, thanks.

This is a sweet shot! Love the light, the bg, and the pose. Personally, I’d have to experiment with maybe moving the owl right of center if this is a crop, but that isn’t meant as a criticism!
Good light,

I like this one even better Bob! Superb shooting and post processing skills to present top notch image like this at ISO-25,000. Well done!
