- Sweet saw whet owl, but focus not sharp, only one eye shown, branch in front distracts.
- This appears to be an elf owl which is the smallest of owls, nocturnal, and reclusive during the day. If this was photographed in the wild, the maker was fortunate to find it close enough to photograph. The eyes are great but the owl body looks a little soft on my screen. Unfortunately the branch in the foreground is distracting. With a different framing it may be possible to crop most of it out.
- Owl do not "pop" out
- Very tender & adorable close shot & it's sitting at a perfect angle, however, while there's detail on the face & wing, the rest of the view needs more clarity - experiment w/a higher f-stop
