[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a Bengal Eagle Owl (I think) shot at Whipsnade Wild animal park.

PP:Convert from RAW, crop, High-pass sharpening, re-size, USM.

A tip for those people who are trying 'flying bird' shots: The bigger the bird, the easier it is to auto-focus! OK, so the wing's aren't quite there but I think that's more motion blur than OOF. :)

Superbe photo Andy !
J'aime beaucoup les ailes déployées.

Nice inflight Andy, Very good sharpness and deatils seen in the head and body. I might've chosen a faster shutter-speed and opened up the aperture a bit on this one..Well done!

Hi Andy,

This is really good my friend. A superb inflight shot. The details on the head and the eyes are very sharp. Composition is great aswell. I like the low POV. Well done & TFS!
