Goodbye Bubo

Not my usual macro subject (i.e., flowers).  I took this one to put up on eBay, but I'm happy with the lighting effect on this silver proof coin in a plastic mount.  A small incandescent, low from the side really helped to contrast the mirror finish on the coin.

This Ukrainian 10 hryvnia coin depicts a Eurasian Eagle Owl (Bubo bubo).  It is one out of only 3,000 coins of this denomination minted.

This is probably my good-bye to a coin that I've had for the past ten years.  What I make from its sale will go towards a Canon lens that I now have the hots for.

Update Oct. 17:  can't believe it didn't sell.  There's no accounting for taste, I guess.
