What is flying over there?
Aah, this is indeed a beautiful macro shot, and definitely deserves high marks. Splendid photo. I love it, it is stunning. Details is sharp. Perfect shot. Cannot also wander what is the chick looking at? It is an intense stare. I enjoyed looking at this photo very much and the photography is good. I am no photographer but admire talent when I see it. Your photo of the tulip also proof to be one of those I admire. I also picked up this very interesting information and found it very helpful. Please check out this out when you do have some time. You might just find it as interesting as I did.

Superb Portrait - amazing details. The focus and sharpness levels are bang one, soft enough to appreciate the texture of the subject. The light is great.
Thanks for sharing

This is a lovely image of this baby Owl. One wonders what it is looking at, probably waiting for its parent's return with food, no doubt. The quality of the image is great, nice sharpness and the detail can be seen well.

Amazing! Great close precise image. You have well selected the DOF to emphasize the eye, and even inside the eye itself. Well done! Reid

Great colors of the eye !
The bird looks like it's realy paying atention to something up in the sky... looks like it's a little bit worried of something...

Bonjour Caroline !
Cette photo est magnifique ! J'adore l'expresion et le regard de la jeune chouette, et les détails, tant sur l'oeil que sur le plumage, sont formidables. L'oeil doré ressort si bien sur le noir-et-blanc du reste de la photo. La composition et lePOV sont également magnifiques. Félicitations !

Beautiful image, Caroline.
Of course it is edited a lot referring to the TOS.
That said...very impressive; I do like the sharp yellow eye...
