Asio Otus
Long-eared Owl

Fotografato in un roost, in un piccolo giardino privato con poche betulle e conifere a Noale, dove quel giono erano presenti tre gufi, ma spesso più numerosi (una decina).
In Europa è forse lo strigiforme che gode di miglior salute, poiché si riscontra un trend di crescita evidente. Il successo demografico è favorito dalla plasticità trofica della specie e dalla capacità di scegliere per la riproduzione anche aree antropizzate e persino degradate purché alberate, utilizzando quasi sempre nidi abbandonati di corvidi (di preferenza quelli delle cornacchie grigie).

Superb capture of this beautiful bird, how could you get all those beautiful colours at once in the bird and in the branches? It is fantastic, I love the pov with the branch entering the frame and leading to the owl. The colours are superbly sharp and bright and the look of the owl to the lens is really something. Thank you!

Ciao Maurizio,
Superb capture of a Long-eared Owl taken from a fine POV in a birch tree during the autumn. Despite some branches in front of the camera most of it is sharp and the owl is posing nicely.
Ciao e grazie,
Ivan

Hi My friend Maurizio,
Hahaha... what a lovely pose of this long-eared Owl. It is monitoring you while you were capturing it i think.:) Cute...
TFS and cheers,

Ciao Maurizio,
It's very good (by my opinion) to browse my friends' galleries and checking out their earlier photos. This one is exceptionally good, with wonderful pose and eye-contact with the "model". An early treasure of You, bravo.
Have a nice weekend, László
