What a lovely shot. I saw one on the telphone poles some time ago but I did not have my camera!!! Diane

That's gotta be one of the cutest shots I've seen in a long time! Superb!

We had some owls in our oak tree in the backyard of our Ocala house...at night we could shine a bright light up there to see them...they would stay still for a few minutes but then fly off 'cause the light bothered them. I was never able to get a photo, though.

Love those eyes peeking through the fork in the tree! Fantastic shot!

You put the "World" in WBW. I make this little "Oh!" noise when a completely off the charts image like this pops up on my laptop screen. It is hard to tell a story with a bird photograph but this one shows how. It has its own light! I would love to see a close crop of this perfect capture! ;-)WBW
