Fascinating to watch this small owl devour a chick, nature can be cruel.

Like the shallow DOF and perspective but I'd just as soon crop out the gorey bits. It's a nice portrait without that. It does tell a story, and a realistic one; just my personal preference not to actually see that!

Very impressive. It's really all about the eyes, and you got them perfectly.

Excellent, excellent photo. You've captured all the fierceness while playing away from the gruesome ends of the predator's actions.

I love the narrow DOF. I would have liked it more if it were just the owl and not the blurred dead prey.
