Agree Wayne, I did go for immediate shock value of a nice big face but I do agree about showing more of the environment. Plus there is so much cool details on these big boys that I really should be showing more. Need to work on some shots and get them on the site :)

CrzyCnuk, most photos on this site don't seem to get the interaction we used to have from previous years. why I don't know. Thanks for posting a vertical image, to me it is more dramatic and shows the surrounding habitat that the owl is living in. Great shot and some day one might pop up in front of me for my chance at a Great Gray.

Hi Wayne, sorry for the delay, I don't get much feedback on my photos usually LOL
Here is a quick edit of the entire Mr Grey (hope it turns out in the comments ok).
