Barn Owl different angles ref by Ciameth Barn Owl different angles ref by Ciameth
Barn Owl (Tyto alba pratincola) head at different angles. Males of this subspecies typically have the lighter or pure white faces while females tend to have slightly darker coloration, especially around the eyes, but there is large overlap between the sexes; the model for this ref falls in the "between" coloration. The lower row of babies and the juvenile barn owl 4 across on the top row were all brought into the rehabilitation center for various reasons and successfully released. The remainder of the pictures are of the same female, a bird that was kept illegally as a pet, imprinted, and fed an improper diet. She suffered from metabolic bone disease and had multiple fractures in her wings by the time she was finally confiscated and turned over to the rehab center. Since she could not be released, she became an educational presentation bird.

These are the most lovely pics ever. <3 I love Barn Owls (well, I love owls in general, but particularily "tyto" owls), and I will definitely use these as refs. Thank you, Cia! :D

Okay, just making sure. I'm not the most savvy with these terms.
Almost thought it meant something along the lines of photo-editing and touchups.
