I love how Short-eared Owls can focus on their targets no matter what distractions are around them.

You know what I really like about your photography? You're the one of very very few very good photographers here on dA, that are passionately showing to people the true beauty of animals. You put all your heart and skills into it.
This photo is so original, I mean you' re showing us the beauty of animals from every possible angle.

Thank you very much for sharing it with us, ordinary people, who have a little knowledge about animals and very little occasions to see them in real world :blowkiss: :hug:

Thank you so, so much Ania your words mean so much to me, truly they do ;-). Unfortunately I will need to stop it soon as I cannot afford to keep it going. I took redundancy last year to follow my life long dream to be a wildlife photographer. However bills need to be paid and so far I have only made $3 lol. I never did it to make money, I did it because I so love it ;-) but I was hoping I might catch a lucky break !!! Cest la vie, I guess

Hmm well, yeah I know...very often a passion is one thing and how to make passion into business another...I guess if, you became fashion photographer it might be easier for you to pay your bills...
I hope you'll still take some nice picture of animals and nature from time to time ;)

There's just something about them. I have never seen an owl that I didn't like. :) Fluffy yes, but it's also their eyes that I like :eager:

Exactly! I love eyes in general as it is but owl eyes just pull me in. I feel the same about wolves for some reason. Anyway, I'm happy to see more of these beauties from you! :excited:
