2020 has had a few positives. Photographed my second Long Eared Owl this year and the second of my life.

Very nice shot in habitat. They are almost always hidden in foliage or within branches so you did a fine job working your way to get a good angle without disturbing this one. On my monitor it appears a bit blue so I would experiment a bit with color temperature to add a bit of warmth. Again, this may be my monitor. Overall a very fine image of an elusive bird.

Terry, A difficult job to get a bird in a somewhat busy area and still it does not look busy. Agree about the blue tinge.

Great stuff. The bird is tack sharp, composition is good, and a great subject.

Stunning image of this magnificent owl in its natural environment, you really had a privilege to be able to portray it.

Lovely owl in habitat, and it pops beautifully from the surrounding foliage, Terry. Sweet detail of the plumage and markings too!
