Macro Moments Week 30: Quizzical Owl

This week, Sue has set us a specific theme for Macro Moments – ‘Birds’. It’s pretty difficult to get a true macro shot of a bird, I should imagine, so here is a (very) tightly-cropped image of an owl which I took at a display of birds of prey last summer.

Fortunately, I was using my best lens, so I think it has managed to retain enough detail, despite the crop.
