I wanted to call this "Punk'd" since the bird (an 18 year old North American Eagle Owl) is called Punk, but it wouldn't have made sense to anyone else... this is a second best.

Dismal day, hence short DoF and small aperture. I hope to go back when he is flying properly.

Well it is doing ok so far. No-one has suggested it yet, but Topaz was not involved in the PP of this shot. Just a little PS CS2 USM and a nice still model!

Yes, Mr Owl, we are ALL looking at you. Got a problem with that? Too bad - just live with it because the person who made this photograph of you did a splendid job and a lot of people will stop by to look at it.
