This is dedicated to Rick (Adanac) for his recent awesome series of yellow-eyed Owl photos :-)

I took this on a Raptor in the Forest Photoday which is run by Miles Herbert (CaptiveLight).

I hope you like it!

Hi Joe,

Grrrrr. I had to get my shot of an owl from nearly 40 feet away and you got right in this one's face. I'm jealous. It is a most beautiful portrait. The yellow eyes, the ears, the feathers are all wonderful. A perfect dedication to Rick.
