Very fine sharp capture of this one who is not just long-eared but also very "long"! Pity that you cut off the tail feathers but even so a nice composition showing this owl in the wild!
TFS and regards, Ulla

This is a so strange looking bird. Their shape just amazed me. It is not easy to photograph owls as they are always hidden (from what I saw so far). I wonder why you cropped its tail of though. This is a great eye contact with nice details. Thanks,

Your shot shows how difficult it is to find these guys and you did a good job taking this.
The blur caused by a twig in front of the lens is outweighed by the rest: sharp and well presented.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

What a strange and beautiful bird, it's 'long' shape looks almost distorted! I just can't get over his face!
Great colours and details, the blur of the twig doesn't matter to me really, as i'm sure had you the choice you would've shot without it in frame.

I think the Long Eared owl is so unique looking compared other owls in Alberta. Nice capture ears and all :) He does look a bit surprised but I guess that's just normal. Nicly pose, colours and detail as he sits in the bramble of branches.

Hi Rick! Great that you caught him as he is so very well camoflauged! Very good POV, showing off his long and lanky body, and oh, those ears! Haven't seen a photograph of one before, only drawings. Wonderful capture! Well done! Linda
Rick, I don't know how I missed this one... after all those boring penetrating eyes are very catching. They are the best part of this shot and almost demand to be seen closer. I have done a WS to show what I mean. Hope you like, Jay
