Sunday Close-up: The Stare

barn owl

“The Stare” / September 2014

I’m using this photo of an owl (Young and weak with exhaustion after being harassed by crows, she was rescued by farm staff. I had to take this close-up shot before we let her go.) to start this new series, “Sunday Close-up” which, as the title suggests, will feature macros and close-ups of random subjects.  With that intensely intelligent gaze, I thought that her image would give a good introduction to the series.  Have a blissful Sunday!
