The depth of field is what makes this a complex and interesting photo! Such detail on the eyes and forward, um, claws? BG is very pleasing. Nice composition.
Gorgeous shot of this bird. They seem to be everywhere where I live, almost a nuisance, but when you stop to really look at them they are gorgeous in color and detail. You've done a fine job of capturing that detail and a splendid bg to boot. Well done!
Outstanding photo, Mario. I love the winter light and the detail is fantastic. Great catch of the bird too :) nice action.
Wonderful capture, Manee. Exposure is perfect - good dof, focus, color.
A stunning photo! Good light and perfect focus. I like that the owl appears to be winking at you. Nice catch, Peter.
It's birds like this that make me want to spend my life savings traveling. What a beautiful specimen! Stunning detail and framing. Thanks for sharing!
Lovely capture, Mike - I almost touch and feel how soft its wings are. Good detail, dof and light, though a little noisy in the bg. Wonderful job!
Wow, Ron - those claws are kind of scary! I didn't realize turtles could have such long ones. It looks like such a sunny day for them - but I bet it was actually cold that day? Good pov and framing - nice light and detail. Best to you - Penny
Hi Christian - wow, this is a great shot for the little time you had to prepare. I love the setting - the colors of the background/foreground, and the jay itself is most complementary! Detail is great - crop too. Nicely caught!
Peter, the detail on this is flawless. What a lovely pose you've caught too - - such a sleepy look. How well it blends in to the tree. Nice crop.
