Northern Hawk Owl
Superb capture of an owl I haven't seen myself. The weather in your neck of the woods looked fantastic today, a great day to get out and find subjects like this one. Great composition, colors and focus Janice. Thanks for this fantastic posting. Look who I'm beside in the gallery too.

The Hawk Owl is very impressive. I like its pose and the powerful view very much. Your composition with the bird sitting on the top of a tree highlights the majestic impression that emanates from the bird. I also appreciate your concise and informative notes.

This image is beautiful and has lots of impact. This Northern Hawk Owl sitting high up on the tree looks like it is guarding the area. It has a very proud pose and I like the direct eye contact. A striking photograph. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Kathy and I appreciate your dedicating this photo to us. As you said, we do both love to watch birds. Often, we don't really see them properly until a good photo is taken. The one you have presented is indeed one such capture. There he is at the top of that pine tree looking for any small creature that moves. When it does, he'll swoop down, with his hawk-like wings, diving into the snow, if necessary, to grab his meal. We enjoyed being able to view your excellent photo of a Northern Hawk Owl very much!

I have never seen this particular bird before. It certainly resembles a hawk and an owl in one body. Excellent detail and exposure with beautiful natural colors. Very interesting bird of prey indeed!! TFS.

Wow! This is a beautiful speciec, I'm always envious of others who get to photograph owls. They are an amazing looking animal. I have been doing a lot of research on owls in hopes to find them more frequently so far it has paid off as the last time I went out we discovered 3 owls in one night. I would have to say the hawk owl is probably the most streamline sports edition of the species, it is gorgeous and I hope to find this one at the end of my lens.
Hi my special capricorn friend janice:)
Good job with the POV and exposure. The expression on Northern Hawk Owl's face does indeed say it all. She noticed the fact that you're taking her photo:)
TFS anfd have a nice Sunday!
