Challenge: Langdon's Birthday (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D
Lens: Konica Minolta AF 75-300mm f/4.5-5.6 D
Location: Bear Mountain Zoo
Date: Mar 18, 2007
Date Uploaded: Mar 18, 2007

It's not actually a great shoehorned owl or a hoot owl; it's a regular old barn owl. I guess you could say I wasn't creative enough to pick out a gift so I picked out this card. Just the photo on the front and the cheesy title is the text on the inside. I could have made it x rated but I chose not to. Besides, I know langdon just wants the money anyway... :)

Happy Birthday!

I really loved this image. Glad it did well for you. The only problem I had is that I wouldn't give somebody an owl for their birthday. LOL Guess I was thinking way into that proverbial box. ;~D

I know I have commpeted on this image before, but everytime I connect onto the internet to this DPC site which is often, this owl is looking straight at me, so I can't escape it, so I must add it to my favorites.....

Whassup bro...you been drinkin decaf?

This is not the Full Metal J I've come to know and love. Now, if it had an orange jammed in it's mouth or something colorful, I'd feel more at home.

Kidding, of course. Beautiful shot. Yeee Hawww...one more for Team New York!!!
