Yes Laurence this one is in the wild :) There were a group of three flying locally last Christmas and they stayed in the area for almost a month

Not bad from a lo-grade photographer as yourself... lol. ;-)


The sharp eyes against the "blur" of the rest of the feathers has an unusual effect.

Mr. Owl in Winnie The Pooh - he looks so scholarly - the Librarian Owl - super shot - as always. :clap: :D

Yeah, but I would say the short eared owl is an exageration... I don't see any ears at all! I think it's still a good shot. I'd be tempted to stylize just a touch in photoshop but I'm not the photographer that you are. So I guess I should post one I did stylize. Anyway I am certainly glad I decided to :+devwatch: you. You're the best.

"Ears" is just an illusion wih Owls. The actual ear is buried under the feathers. The tufts that are seen on Long Eared. Eagle Owl, Great Horned etc are purely there for camoflague to break up the head outline, and have no connection with the physical act of hearing.
