Kitsnaps: Snowy Owl

Snowy Owl at Dublin Zoo

People might get the impression I like birds. I really have no particular fondness or interest in them that I’m aware of, except I really like taking pictures of them. No idea why, honestly.

This is a good picture in color (I’ll post it if people want to see it), but I think it’s fantastic in black and white. It’s the eyes, so clear and sharp. The patterns in the feathers are also much more distinct in black and white, and the sunlight hitting its breast and casting its head into a little more shadow…I just think it turned out really well. :)

Allow me to narrate its thoughts for a moment...
"Are you edible? No? Sod off, then."
"Wait... Are you sure you're not edible?"

It's his author photo, clearly.

Now he just needs to write the book.

*laughs* Yes, you're right. But I'm afraid the book's not going to be a best-seller, unless somebody existential gets hold of it:

"Who who? Who who who. Who who who who, who who who. Who who!"

Oh, he's beautiful. They just look so snooty, don't they? We should hug them and squeeze them and call them Hedwig.

Lovely pic. I'd like to see the color version as well. Perhaps a bit of photoshop to bring out the color in the eyes, but leave the rest in black in white.

I... I didn't realize this wasn't the color version at first.
