I love this shot!
Jim,After looking at your beautiful shot again I was reminded of the time my wife told me to stop the car and turn around because she thought she saw an owl.When we got to the tree this is what we saw:This from a woman who can't see the 'Check Engine' light. Bob
It is amazing that anyone spotted that from the road Bob! It reminded me of this shy red morph...
That's incredible, Jim! You have a lock on one-eyed-owl photos!Bob
Great photo, your wife is gifted and talented. Thanks for sharing.Emory
Hi JimAmazing camouflage. The light in your photo looks great and I like your depth of field.Thanks for sharing.

The light was perfect winter afternoon light with plenty of reflection off the snow to eliminate shadows.
Hi Jim,Like all your shots this is great. It looks like you were on the same level - was the tree low or you on a hill? Thanks for sharing.John
Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others. <><
He was up about 12'. Backing up at 700mm and extending my tripod minimized the angle.
Wow! Glad you saw this! I think I better get my eyes checked! I probably miss owls all the time! I hear the GHO hooting in my backyard all the time and never see them!!
Many people in the park came over to see what the fuss was about and could not see the bird from 20' away.
What a wonderful image Jim, it's always nice to see something that's a bit different from the usual "field guide" type shot.Did you use fill flash, or is that the sun highlighted in its eye?

That's the sun - which was directly behind me - in his eye.
Wow, I really like this image!

Tom MILLSIts all about the light and compositionMy best investment is my Nikonians firstname.lastname@example.org
I was happy get a shot of the lid and eye, it emphasizes the curvature.
I have been looking at this for a couple days now. Just can't get enough! From the foreground to the background, and everything in between, it is just great! Congratulations on a very excellent photo Jim. You nailed it!Don
