[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Those who keep up with my shots here on TrekNature know I do enjoy owls and birds of prey as a whole.

I've already posted owls flying, owls in pairs, owls by themselves... But this is the first time I manage to capture an owl having its meal. It seems the meal is a fledgling (a young sparrow?).

It's a "coruja-do-campo" (Speotyto cunicularia). In English, burrowing owl. They usually build their nests by digging holes. They can be found almost all over Brazil, feed on insects and have nocturnal and diurnal habits.

Ontem estava fotografando uma buraqueira na frente de minha casa (tem 3 ninhos há menos de 20 metros de minha casa!!!) quando vi um gavião pousado em uma árvore próxima, o danado estava com uma cobra (cobrinha bem entendido) fazendo o mesmo que esta coruja... não pergunte... eu respondo... não consegui tirar NENHUMA foto!!! Pode?
Sua coruja está ótima. Nitidez boa com todos detalhes. Um excelente momento. PARABÉNS!!!!
Obrigado!

Very nice action picture! The right amount of DOF gives this image nice details. Paul :)

Another great one of an owl. Again, with absolutely perfect sharpness and great colors. Pity the poor little bird who became lunch though!

Hi Livio:
Great shot of this owl defeathering it's kill. The composition is very good, and seeing the owl's eye really adds to the intense feel of the shot. The colour and clarity are excellent!

You "enjoy owls and birds of prey as a whole." Now what does that tell us about you Livio?? :) Just kidding!
Good shot of the owl getting stuck into his freshly caught meal. Poor little bird! The owl stands out well against the blurred BG. Nice job, thank you.

Cruel in human eyes, but not in owl's. Very good moment Livio - interesting observation and good shot. Little bird had no luck, but owl is happy I bet.

Hi Livio

Wow... how did you manage to get so close? Excellent capture. Perfect crisp, clear sharp details. Wonderful work. TFS
