Shot last month. I wish I had more room in front of the owl :-)
D2Hs, Nikon (MF) 500mm f/4 P ED IF + TC-16A
1/2000, ISO-400, f/6.3, on tripod.

Please click on the image for uncompressed view, thank you.

NOTE: I reedit the image and removed white patch as KK Hui noted.

The eye looks reasonably sharp and agreed with your self critique, Mako!
The bright patch distracts ...

KK Hui: Thanks for the suggestion on the white patch. I removed it best I could and it looks better I think :-)

Here you go again with that wonderful twilight colour palette and your hunting owls, Ludo! Lovely.

I like the mood setting capture in this image, very well put together LUDO.

Maki, Interesting bluish/blackish bg. I think it adds to the image.

The owl is showcased beautifully on that gorgeous background, Ludo. Well done!

Nice flight shot against deep-blue sky, Ludo.

Another lovely shot- I think it has enough room. I might even crop on the right a bit.
