Hello Jose,
What a neat shot of this beautiful Barn Owl. I have never seen one sitting out in the open like this, you were very fortunate. I think these are probably the prettiest owls of all, with their gorgeous plumage and unique markings.
I did manage to get a few photos of some young that were nesting high up in a barn one time.

Hallo Jose
This is such a gorgeous image, as all is just so special. The owl's pose, the wonderful detail in its feathers, the point of view, composition and frame and the dark background that highlights the owl's prominent features to the best. Best regards and thanks for sharing.

Ciao Jose, original portrait of beautiful owl, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Sivio

Excellent capture of a splendid Owl specie. The colors and details are superb.
