    Dave,

    I'm jealous too. That is a beautiful shot and one I would put up on my wall any day. I have dining room with a few sculptured owls done by artists and I love them.

    I love owls and I love this shot.

    The reason I love owls is that I'm a Sheffield Wednesday fan (soccer to you yanks! ) and their nickname is 'The Owls'!

    Just to see that beautiful bird in the flesh (or feathers) must have been a treat. To have captured it so magnificently is just... ...well to quote a couple of others who've gone before me... I'm jealous!!

    Big thumbs up!
