Debra Plett

thanks ver much Clifford.

Heather Mellon

Another outstanding capture Debra. Not an easy one to get considering how well camouflaged he was.. great shot and so beautiful!

Debra Plett

Thank you Heather.

Yves Langlois

Nice capture Debra. With the enlarge mode the light is still very good, very natural. Compo is nice with all those white birch. He blend in well. The angle of lighting produced the bluish black tone I appreciate on the face of that owl. Like it very much.

Debra Plett

Thank you Yves always appreciate your comments, I preferred this background over the oak trees as well. Helps to brighten the background.

Harold Fleming

Not easy to focus on that one, Debra but you caught it nicely.

Debra Plett

Thanks Harold, I have been manually focusing most of my shots with all of the bush around the subject.

The GGO was listening very intently, he would shift his head down and sideways but did not leap off the branch for lunch. Lighting was a bit better at this angle.
