First of all just to see a bird like this at night posing so beautifully would be a real thrill, but to actually capture it in such a quality photo is awesome! I could probably count on my fingers all the owls I've seen perched in the open like this here in Ohio.
Love the detail in it's plumage and of course those "BIG" yellow eyes. Framing couldn't be any better and exposure is perfect in this instance. Great work!!

Excellent capture .I like the position of Owl on the right side of the frame, I also like the eye's contact. As usual sharp image with great plumage details. I had read not to long ago that people had to be very careful when using flash on them at night since that there pupil were completely dilute.TFS Michel
