    Love the owls! Especially the grim looking one, he's like "Wtf dude, what are you staring at? My wife?" hehe. They are such interesting creatures. I was always under impression they'd be rather sleeping at daytime :)

    Nice perspectives they've been all shot from and congratulations for the sharp shots. Tried myself to shoot birds, I think I have to train a litte more :) Only the bokeh at #2 is a little too harsh on my eyes.

    Thanks I agree with you on the quality of the bokeh on 2. The owls are fun to shoot, they're not shy. The lapwings are downright aggressive.
