Outstanding photo. Love the way it's composed . . . entire owl is in focus and complemented by the shadow. Contrast with light and dark as well as the variety of focus lends to a fantastic shot. How did you get in front of it? Luck or patience???

Thank you Joe. This owl had several favorite perches from which it hunted. I postioned myself near one of the perches and captured the image as it flew toward the perch. By the way, this is the best of many...the delete buttom on my computer is the most used key.
