Nicely done, the owl looks a little surprised! The directional light gives some nice shadowing on the side and the top of the head, but it would be nice to see more of the side and its colours. Striking image though.

Hi Emin- Great eye contact here. Very well captured and presented this "Hume's Owl". Nice colour and sharpness. Thanks for sharing. Regards- Srikumar
