als hij je helemaal aankeek was ie denk ik nog iets mooier.
Goede scherte en wazige achtergrond.
Mooi portretje van deze uil.
Hij kijkt een beetje verrast lijkt het.

Fantastic portrait of the Great Grey, beautiful eye contact, and the whole pic was done on a very high technical standard. Even Howard (marhowie) is right about the blown out patches, this is a photo not to be missed. Exceptional capture. Bravo MF, and of course tfs.
