Cette Chouette 駱ervi鑽e chassait dans les champs enneig駸 en bordure de l'auoroute 40. Aucun trucage, la lune y 騁ait vraiment.

This Northern Hawk Owl was hunting for mice in the snow covered fields alongside highway 40. No PP work here, the moon was really there.

bonjour Serge

The owl capture is already a good one and it is a big bonus to have the moon behind it. You cannot ask for a better moment than this, great work! I see a little noise on my screen, but I note iso200 only. The light on the owl is very nicely exposed and this is well placed composition.

Great work.

tfs, bill

Vraiment superbe !
Une photo tr鑚 naturelle qui sent bon la fraicheur.
Il y a une jolie lumi鑽e.

ciao Serge..
a beautiful intense composition of sights and colours! excellent.. it's really poetic!! bravo!

You are a lucky man to take the owl with the moon, wonderful shot
best regards

superbe!!!quel cadrage!
une photo de "bord de route" exceptionnelle

Hi Serge
Good clear view of this owl. The moon behind him is a little disturbing for me, why not putting it next to the owl so he is looking at it?

hello Serge
how are you friend?
what a wonderful pov
good composition
the sky is lovely in its blue with a moon in it.
you were lucky to had this wonderful shot

hello serge,
when I firt viewed this image I guessed wrongly that the moon was pp work. Reading your note and finding that i was mistaken has lifted my spirits. I'm not a great fan of pp work, mush preferring to images that are the real mccoy. And because this is for real makes it a superb shot. For me, this is what photography is about, earching for that special moment. You found it! well done.Perfect compo, a delight.

Great POV (and good timing) to have the moon in the background like this. Details in the hawk are a little soft, with the sweet spot for focus seeming to be in the branches - I'm guessing this was hand held at maximum focal range?
Thanks for sharing

Great capture, Serge! Good focus, nice POV and shapness!
The moon is wonderful too. Congratulations for this fine
presentation! TFS :o)

Brazilian greetings,

Bonjour Serge.

Tr鑚 belle prise. Cette chouette semblait t'attendre.

Bonjour Serge,

Tu aurais voulu le faire, tu n'aurais pas pu, c'est 鈞, la magie de la photo, 黎re l au moment pr馗is o quelque chose va arriver!!!
Bravo et hop dans mes favoris!!!

Salut Serge,

Superbe cette photo. Nettet et exposition sans reproche. Compostion simple et efficace. Point de vue tr鑚 bien choisi pour mettre en contraste l'oiseau de nuit et la lune. Faible profondeur de champs oblige cette focale, la lune flou n'en demeure pas moins symbolique. Chapeau pour cette belle r饌lisation.
