What a gorgeous photograph of a gorgeous bird!! The zip tie is no big deal, as the bird is steals the show!
Jim, gorgeous , crisp shot of the owl and great position.
The top half of the image is really nice.
Mixed feelings about the zip tie and old wood piece - to me, they detract a lot.
Very envious of your having snowies!
Thank you for the critiques and the EP. I figured that this one fit the Human Fauna category. Photographers have been chasing these birds around and I was able to stay just outside the edge of her circle of fear. She was very relaxed and did not mind my presence…Jim
