A long day trekking the woods to find this bird. Even after finding the owl, we had to wait several hours for the harsh sunlight to dissipate. Worth the wait!

Mao, that first shot does it for me. You have me drooling. I love that Background too! Man, that's one beautiful bird! Now if it were mine, I would crop it up some from the bottom and then clone out the little blurred sticks on the left. It would be perfect and ready for the wall after that. Excellent series, you do some fine shooting!

I guess I was too lazy after walking around all day. You're right, I've cloned off the fuzzy branches and it looks much better.

Thanks Scott. Had heck of a time exposing him the first hour, didn't help that half his body was in sunlight and shadow on the other. Then the eye problem. We knew we would then run into slow shutter speeds if we waited but it was a chance we had to take. But, we were glad we waited.
