I saw a question from Cynthia to Dave regarding his barn owl image, regarding a blurry extension on the owl's face.  Dave answered it by indicating the ridge of feathers extending from the eyes was the reason for the blur.  I'm posting this image which was taken a few years ago for the express purpose of showing this ridge, which is very deep from eye to the end of the feathers.

It is a great image to illustrate the "ridge," and a beautiful image in its own right. The detail around the eye and face is impeccable. Excellent work!

Thanks, Warren. A beautiful shot, and this further clarifies my question. (Or, rather, the answer to my question!).
