Thanks everyone,

My picture drew 9000 Facebook likes (6th place so far for April) and drew 54 comments (3rd place so far for April) which is pretty good since I have absolutely no social media following or presence. There were some very excellent photos this month so I’m probably not in the running for “Photo of the Month” but I’m very happy with the response.

Its still not too late to “Like” or place a comment.

This photo is the clear front runner for April, 33,000 Facebook likes and 126 comments. An amazing shot.

Update; It appears as if the mouse was placed as bait for the owl by the photographer. This has resulted in a huge controversy and may result in this front running image being disqualified.
