This is a photo of a Great Horned Owl from the North Carolina Raptor Center. I made a visit to this center today and was completely amazed at the birds they have on hand. This facility rehabilitates birds that have been injured or disabled in any way and release them back into the wild whenever possible.

This is one I where I did get a vote made - although I am not sure that had I finished voting it might not have gone up a point. The feather detail is superb as is the light

A tad overexposed in the whites, but a really great head shot.

I like the way you took this with the owl looking off to the left. Very good picture.

Owls are so coooooooool.... Nice job.

Good focus on the eye. I like this image a lot, good colours, nice composition, good contrast (except for that little highlight blowout in the middleleft). I have my doubts about the border, but that doesn't really matter. 9

great wildlife shot. Nice lighting.

Beautiful! Love the thin border line reflecting the eye colour. Unfair competition, though :))) 10 from me.
