Hey, Donna. I have some raptor pictures on here as well that are from the LSU raptor rehab center. The birds are great. Great shot! Did you put the Screech Owl on a back drop? I got to see a bald eagle come in that had been shot in the wing. Unfortunatly it will never be released back into the wild. I'm am shooting a Red Tailed Hawk release tomorrow morning so theres some good news! Again great shot, and for anyone reading this, only "shoot" birds with your camera! :)
