They're still babies. Look at the body language: Altia, a 7 week old Siberian Eagle Owl, the largest species of owl in the world meets Powys, a 5 week old Little Owl. The pair are being raised at The Scottish Owl Centre in Scotland’s central belt.
I love the contrast of light and dark in this photo. I also love the symmetry that the shadow creates (a line down the middle of her face) Also, I love close ups on emotion, this draws in the audience and makes them feel the emotion.
