Coruja-do-nabal,Short-eared Owl (Asio flammeus)

Waiting for new pics of this owl I present one pic token last year...

"The Short-eared Owl (Asio flammeus) is a species of typical owl (family Strigidae). Owls belonging to genus Asio are known as the eared owls, as they have tufts of feathers resembling mammalian ears. These "ear" tufts may or may not be visible. Asio flammeus will display its tufts when in a defensive pose. However, its very short tufts are usually not visible. The Short-eared Owl is found in open country and grasslands. The word flammeus is Latin for "flaming, or the color of fire"".(Wiki)

Exposure Time: 1/395
F-Stop: f/7.1

Espectacular retrato has conseguido, amigo José, y además impactante composición donde el redondel del rostro de este Asio flammeus ocupa el centro del cuadro perfectamente definido y el resto del plumaje del cuerpo trabajando como un background esfumado. Felicitaciones!

Desde Argentina,
