Another owl of green eye!
It is very difficult to photograph animals, birds mainly, in the nature! They don't let to approximate a lot, most of the time we have to please with at the most about 10 meters!!
Even with to 200mm of F828 this distance is little for a good clearness.
This owl let a little nearer one to arrive and I liked the "pose" of the same.
I thank the critic and the visit!
