About This Image

the parent owl atop the nest tree. The parent flew in with some food for the babies just as we were leaving, so captured a few shots as she landed atop the nest tree. In the original, you can see its eyes glowing red. Not sure if it will show up in compressed version here.
There was one baby in the nest, but it had been out, flying back just as dusk was falling.

I can see the eyes and indeed and it's an incredible shot. Owls are one of my favorites. I've collected them in many forms over the years, but lack of space has nudged me to part with many of them. This one is certainly eligible for a magazine cover. Wilma

Hi Don, thanks for the great comment, happy you like it. Can you see the hint of red in the owl's eyes? I can just make it out on this screen. Am not sure if I have these images now, as it was sometime ago that they were taken (May 2005) - will check on the CD backups - but all I know is that there are loads of repeated images on the cd's,as the puter was already acting up before crashing. Have not seen this one or the others taken at the same time, on the external hard drive backups, not sure why.

Interesting! I don't have P.S.P but several other editors. I'll have to take a look at what they can do.

thanks Kathy. In the original, you can just see the red eyes of the owl. It was quite high on the tree, and I don't have that great a telephoto on my camera, so it's a wonder I get any of these telephoto shots : ) No, it's not the gazing ball. Just put the original (cropped) pic into a circle on Paint Shop Pro. very easy to do : )

Nice shot and a very interesting background. Is that your gazing ball?

Excellent shot! I love owls too and have a series of documentation of a family of baby owls that I'll hopefully get uploaded someday.
