This is a wild bird. I only photograph wild animals. I don't do captives.

HAHA, poor owl. Great shots Jim. I guess knowing you can is enough for the owl, if it was me, I'd have to show them every now and then. :)

Those are some stupendous shots The expression of the crow in #5 is really good. The light on the first two is fantastic.

Superb series but #4 really tickles my fancy. A real wall hanger for me.

A dynamite set here Jim..Every shot tells a story. Love the light in the first two and the light details and pose in the second is just wonderful. The expressions in the 5th shot on the Owl's face and the Crow's as well is hilarious and at the same time I feel bad for the Owl. Having witnessed Owls eating Crows though it only seems fitting. I take it there are at least two different Owls here?

Excellent series there! I really got a chuckle out of the crow coming down behind the owl.
