Arctic Owl in Fuzzy Slippers

I was quite suprised for this image to have turned out well. It was very low light (as befits an owl) and I did not turn on my flash, so as to not be invasive to other people OR the owl. The glass also seems to have posed little or no problem. As a result, the exposure was 1/3 second and I was not using a tripod. The owl was also about 25 feet from me.

Looking at the image, his feet strike me a lot like the old fashioned fuzzy bunny slippers.
