That is about the most amazing shot I've seen! The detail is so sharp, you can count the feathers! Also catching the light in it's eye tops this outstanding shot! You've just set a very high standard for bird photos!

I'm so jealous of this great shot!

They aren't normally seen that often the Tawny Frogmouth and this is an excellent shot of one.

How do we know it doesn't self-identify as an owl? We gotta remember to be more open minded!
