Owls Are Fascinating

This is one of my first owl shots. I always found them to be beautiful and interesting.

Great shot. Talk about in your face. Any closer and the viewer's nose will get bit.

Thanks Duck, I've always been into "In Your Face". This one hangs in my house on 2' X 3' canvas.

Very nice. Wild owls are hard to photo around here

Thanks Tom.
Pete, this was taken at an outdoor show called "The Scottish Games" in Old Westbury, NY. Every year a birding club puts on a display of hawks, owls and other birds of prey. They do rescue and teaching. If I remember, this owl was sitting on a guy's hand.
