Oh, my, Dave! This one is over the top!! Just gorgeous- the owl details are perfect with the nuanced texture of the wood and iron perch. I love how the claws sort of melt down into the wood. And the soft background tops it off. Just delightful! Can't stop looking at it. :))

(Ummm-where do Cuddly Critter and Morning Mist come from? ) Errr..I didn't know owls could be cuddly but this one looks like a softie!

A well-composed image and a lovley pose! l love the stare of the owl across the frame. Texture on the post and metal fitting is very nice, and I like that most of the owl, particularly the head, appears to have been left natural. Beautifully done, Dave!

Wonderful image! Love the texture in the post and as Cindy noted, the way the claws melt into the post. The whole image really comes together nicely!

The old iron and weathered post provides a lovely perch for this wonderful Barn Owl with its soft plumage, while the markings in the wing pick up on the surrounding colour palette perfectly! A real pleasure to view, Dave - and beautifully done! Love it!
