I think this is the Eagle Owl..
The Eagle Owl is a very large and powerful bird, similar in size, but typically slightly smaller than the Golden Eagle. It is the largest species of owl with a wingspan of up to 200 cm. Adult females can weigh in excess of 4 kg (8.8 lbs), in comparison the common Barn Owl weighs about 500 grams (1.1 lbs). It mainly feeds on small mammals, but can kill prey up to the size of foxes and young deer (up to 10 kg/22 lbs), if taken by surprise. Larger prey (over 3 kg/6.6 lbs) is consumed on the ground which leaves the bird vulnerable (i.e. to other foxes). It will also take many other birds including other birds of prey.

Hi Annick
Great Eagle Owl. Composition POV and a look on his "face" is great. I am wondering why there are noises on your photo?

Best wishes

Hi Annick.
He does not amused, interesting how the eyes are looking at you and one ear up.
Lovely shot of him, sharp, clear and colour, all good.

Hallo Annick,

Het is inderdaad de grootste uilensoort, nl. de OEHOE. Een mooie opname. Scherp, haarzuiver, schitterende kleuren en een goede POV. Ik vraag me aleen af hoe heb je dat voor elkaar gekregen om de achtergrond te wissen? Wil je mij dat doormailen s.v.p.?? Bedankt alvast. Groeten Bob

Hello Annick,
A beautiful bird, nice portrait. Great exposure and colours, good light to the front of the Owl and a nice clear view of the eyes. Shame about the washed out background but a nice shot, good representation of this majestic Bird.

Hello Annick, fantastic close up, great collors and details..well done

Hi Annick,
Excellent capture of this owl!
How did you got that uniform clear background?
Was it a covered ski?
I like very much the details seen on their plumage, and the stunning orange eyes.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Wow, Annick, so interesting 'view'!
Well done!
This is real white BG or Photoshop?
TFS and regards,
