FZ200 - Northern Hawk Owl, Old Quarry Trail, Ottawa

I took this shot from about 50-60 feet away in full bright sun, so it was a real challenge trying to retain feather detail in the highlights... this was all I could manage under the circumstances but the pose was just too good to discard the photo because of poor IQ. I tried -1/3EV and -2/3EV and the former was better, but I just couldn't get those facial feathers to resolve. I went back the next day to try some other things, but alas, there was no sun and no owl! LOL!

What is it about owls that so captivate us?
