Superb Owls

Barn Owl Galyat.

The Atlantic has a recurring series every Super Bowl Sunday, which features some superb owls and some superb photography. I especially enjoyed this picture, which features a few nice photographic details. The slightly off-center framing gives the picture some more perspective, and there is a nice feeling of depth with the blurred-out foreground images. Additionally, the color is absolutely beautiful, with the sunset light hitting the owl just perfectly to bring it to life. There is almost a halo effect around the edges with its back shrouded in shadow. To see some more superb owls (and there are many) go here:
