    most people think that as long as the eyes are in focus the rest of the shot can be blurry. But what happens when the eyes are the subject of the shot. You have answered that question and the shot looks Brilliant for it

    Thanks Jim….this is a shot I captured with Michael Cummings, a local guide I hired to take me to the owl woods. He sure knows how to find the birds, worth every penny.

    Now this owl has my attention! And I am laughing at myself as much as the owl. Great job.

    Breathtakingly gorgeous!! I need to ask that you please add the common name of the raptor into the description so we can accept it into the Birds Of Prey group. Thank you!!
