    Congratulations Peter.

    That's quite an impressive start to your posting career on CiC.

    You've cropped it tight top and bottom so that the wings go outside (top) the frame and touch (bottom) the edge. Was that something you deliberately wanted to go for? I can see why you would want to bring attention right in on the bird and not have 'extra' space around it.

    One look at those claws and you know why the owl is a member of the raptor family. Beautiful specimen and a great shot!

    Thanks for the comments they are very welcome.

    Donald,

    Whilst I have cropped the image I actually missed the tip of the top wing.
