Virginia is a Great Horned Owl who was hit by a car. She is incapable of using her talons to hold prey, but that didn't stop her from looking absolutely regal in the presence of her audience at a charity event. She was an amazingly cooperative model, allowing me to cut in close with my 60mm f/2.8 macro for this shot of her eye. I am glad the sky and weather were cooperative in providing copious amounts of light for my use.
