a Photographic Journey by Meryl

Wisdom II

Out in the open sun in my eyes
cameras pointed at me they think I’m wise
please no more questions about the dead
or love and money simply swivel your head

Please bring me a newt or a couple of mice
a fat little bunny would really be nice
I don’t know that much but I know what I like
I’m tired of daylight I’m going on strike

    Thanks Robyn, I’m having lots of fun with Hooter…yes, maybe the profile is wiser? What do you think?

  3. I give a hoot and so does the owl. He is holding on to that perch with talons that are producing 5000 pounds per square inch.

      No worries…Calgary is quite a ways from the Quogue Wildlife where he’s behind bars most of the time….:(

  8. A great shot of the owl. I really like it’s expression, which might be only how the Hooter looks, but never-the-less. I also like the contrast between the owl and the blooming tree in the background, and you did very well to keep the flowers so out of focus; otherwise they would have taken the attention away from the owl.

    • Thank you…yes, the shallow depth of field worked well…and the expression, well, the profile does seem to make him look particularly wise…there were others where he’s softer and almost cuddly…who knew?
