interesing owl Christodoulos,excellent photo,regards..

Wow, so lovely and beautiful Barn Owl it is! I love this closeup macro so much, Christodoulos, with perfect composition, DOF, POV, sharpness, details, and natural colors. I like its funny white face and the beautiful markings or patterns on its plumage. Very well done, my friend. Thanks and have a wonderful day!

Hello Christodoulos

Even with very similar colours the isolation from the BG is amazing. Absolutely wonderful picture of Barnowl with rather interesting dark plummage.

Majestic composition with this majestic "Lechuza de los Campanarios"(Tyto alba). Timely slanting light that bathes the wings of a great bird of prey, the magnificence of the design highlights the plumage and seems the rich robes of a noble Renaissance. And the shades of rich blue background ... One of the best works made ​​colorful precious and more you have posted, and you have posted photographs look fantastic!
Admired for what I see ...

Hello Christodoulos,
An outstanding image of what I believe is one of the most beautiful Owls in the world. The Barn Owls plumage and facial features is like no other owl, simply gorgeous.
I would love to just see one of this guys out in the open like this. I have viewed them up in the rafters of barns before, but never posed so nicely like this particular specimen. Awesome shot!!!
