Same owl as the one that did very well in the "Animal in motion" challenge.
A Malayan Fish Owl flying from it's perch to his trainer.
Changed the shot perspective this time with a more head on shot which I find a touch more difficult but much more attractive.

The crop wasn't perfect more due to the fact that I did not want to clone certain distractions/objects away below the bird.

Hope you all like it (I know I do) and hope this one helps me move further up the FSM ladder.

Wow!! I am really glad this did so well. This FS has so many awesome shots, so finishing so strongly is great.
Thanks again for all the votes.

What an outstanding catch. The light is great. Seems a little sharp. Still great, though.
