The picture was taken at Kolmården Zoo in Sweden. With a Nikon D800 and a Nikon 70-200 F2.8 Lens

I have tried to take picture of wild birds with some moderate success i would love to take a picture like this in the wild of an Owl or Eagle that is about to strike it´s prey. Until then i give u this :)

Pls comment on what´s is good and bad so i can become better until next time ill try.

If you like pictures of Wolves; Lynx; foxes, Wolverines and other wildlife and have the time please visit my gallery and tell me what you think their is a good chance you find something you like

Sincerely
Pali

It just gives all this extra attention to the subject which is great, especially for an action shot like this.

I like this photo very much, the frozen movement looks great and the pose is interesting. :D
I can't help but think of Starwars. ;)
The fact that the owl looks at the camera creates a very nice intensity.
And as you asked for a critical view, maybe it would look better if you cropped just a bit of the left green background off, so that the ratio doesn't look so wide. It now looks a bit like a close-up-shot in panorama-ratio.

I grew up with magical beings, I LOVE those movies though I acidently watched the first one and then the third one case my mama couldn't remember at the time how they went other than which one was the first. So yeah. I LOVE Pippin and OH CRAP HA I remember his name now!!! Legolas (I know I spelt his HORRIBLY WRONG!) I apologize. ^_^
