Coruja-das-torres,Barn Owl (Tyto alba)

Another picture taken from the car of this barn owl.A very common bird in the wetlands of the Tejo estuary.Is very easy to approach and usually the perch and very often the barbed wire are present in the pic wish is not the case in here.

Hi José, my neighbour today,
Beautiful photo with superb contrast and on the owl, lights and colors. Fantastic sharpness and plenty of details, simply breathtaking. I can easily imagine a vertical frame also, but a top class image in every way. Bravo.
Have a merry Christmas with your loved ones, kind regards, László

Hello Jose,
A wonderful shot of this gorgeous looking Barn Owl. This is definitely one of my favorite owls to view, mainly because of their unique and stunning plumage and the fact that they reside here in Ohio. It is not easy to photograph these pretty birds at night while using flash without completely blowing out the tiny white feathers around it's face, but you have achieved this feat with excellent results. Perfectly posed in a manner in which we can view every feather and marking in fine detail. You were fortunate that the flash didn't produce the red eye appearance as it often does.
I do believe I would have cropped out most of the wasted space on the left, but this is just my personal preference. Well done!!
