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

Yesterday after dinner I went to the Tagus Estuary Reserve looking for this birds,always looking forward... not easy to do by one self,the car light as main source...we only need some cooperation :)

At this time the wetlands of the Tagus estuary is plenty of this species...

Hello Jose

WOW ! great use of the flash in the darkness
to help put the owl in focus and in evidence
and by darkening the background, also great
use of higher ISO settings, the warm color tones
of the plumage it is wonderful, TFS
