I gave this one 7 and 7 and I almost never give 7. This picture is the essence of velocity. A bird flyig in bullet/attack mode. An owl coming at you while zeroing on a pray and getting a sharp shot...That's incredible. My sincere admiration.

super shot personally i have never witnessed an owl shot like this!! most are posed on the ground. this is an incredible catch! recently i was doing a landscape on top of a local mountain with the 10-20mm lens on... and up from the snow floats a snow owl...looked as big as an eagle.

Fantastic, What a shot! Well done!

Amazing Shot ! ! ! This is one of the best (if not the best) bird photo I have seen on this forum. This bird is totally focused on his prey and you captured the determination in its eyes. Thank you for sharing and Great job?

Wow (again)! I am amazed at how well you consistently get the key photo of each bird. Nothing static about your images. You just keep raising the bar for everyone.

You're a friek Jody! I'm a big fan for years watching your work as I grew my portforio. This is sick!

Absolutely Beautiful Shoot Jody!

Absolutely Beautiful Shoot Jody!

This BIF is excellent and very good - exactly as they silently "dive" to get the catch maybe a fieldmouse!

In the south Sweden we now have a year of "invasion" from up north to south a several hawk-owls and I have for first time in my life seen this in wild!

Your photo is just so perfectly and well done!

It a joy to see this Photo-Gem Jody!


Wish you all the Very Best! (7/7)
