Hopefully you are all not growing tired of my Elf Owl photos. Today I was finally rewarded with the Male Elf Owl coming out of the nest and into some full sunset lighting. I wish there weren't so many branches around but otherwise I'm very happy with it. I took quite a few, but this one was my favorite pose.

Like to see the guy look a bit more toward the camera.

Awesome photo Chris.
I like that he is looking right, into the frame.
But I would love a direct stare too.

Thanks everyone, I have a bunch of him looking right at me but I just liked this pose for some reason. I will upload one with direct eye contact tonight when I get back home.

Beautiful owl and both are extremely nice captures Chris. You can't go wrong with either in my book.
As for the branches, I think it adds authenticity to the setting and there's nothing wrong with habitat inclusion at all. Well done!

Also if anyone is interested I flipped my camera over into video mode for a few seconds while I was photographing him.
