I've seen owls in zoos and at bird places but this is the first time I've seen one just sitting in a tree. The neat thing was that there were two of them. I chose to center the owl but you could easily crop on the right if you'd prefer a more square view. Thanks in advance for any comments. ENJOY! Please view full screen.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

Interesting shot. It seems somehow distracted, like it is looking off into space. Reminds me of looking out the window in grade school. What a beautiful owl!!!

He know he's clever. Think therefore he is posing that willingly for your Jen.

Very fine post.

What a beautiful creature, I love owls. How fortunate to catch him in his own habitat. I've only seen them at night when I can't shoot them. The way the branches are I think centered works here.

Fantastic. What a thrill it must have been to see this Owl in the wild, you must have gotten goose bumps. Nice focus and capture of it looking down.

We have a few owls that live in our trees, but they're always gone by the time we get back with our cameras. Nice capture.

Love it! I've always wished to spot one in the wild. I think it's perfect as is with the gorgeous background.
