Bubo virginianus, surpriswd and stranded in attic of the ranger station up in the mountain ! How do you like the look on his face ? Pretty scarry , huh ?
Nothing pisses off this king predator of the night more than a series of flash bounces ! Not recomended but the only way to keep a memory of the moment ! 48 squirell corpses, mainly skulls in the nest, others mice, small birds and two snakes , one large ! this is one ferocious bird , love it !

'Guilty flashing straight into my eyes! Verdict - 2 months without flash.' :-) Superb owl. Eyes from dreams. Excellent portrait Radu!

I aggree with Grzegorz. two months no flash. The shot is exquisite. I see the flash in his eyes. Very good job

Nice portrait, very good details.
Well done.

When I first saw it I thought 'Wow...intense owl dude!' ... then I realised you'd scared the crap out of him. You're so mean Radu.
Brilliant shot,though! Almost looks like a cartoon frame!

Very good Radu.
Good details and colours.
Very good job.

You did scare the [email protected] out of him, Radu. The jury has spoken two months it is and send the flash to following adress.... :)

Nice one!

wow, great shot. Haunting. He doesn't look happy with you at all!

Impactante primer plano con gran agudeza y un bello colorido.
Los detalles en su plumaje son realmente llamativos al igual que la profundidad de la mirada captada.
Personalmente no me agrada el encuadre tan ajustado sobre el ave.... pero es sólo un punto de vista.

Impressive close up with great sharpness and beautiful colorful.
The details in their plumage are really showy like the depth of the caught glance.
Personally I does not please me the fit frame so on the bird.... but it is only a point of view.

Superbe !
Mais je crois que la bestiolle a du devenir aveugle a cause du flash !

Radu, Good close-up with great impact. Well done..

Did you miss the skulls of the last photographers that did this to him.

Excellent capture and he is not happy at all, but I can hear the squirrells cheering in the background. Owl - 48, Squirrells - 1

Excellent shot
