Egyptian eagle owl
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|We were touring some of the really old (older than the 3 great pyramids) pyramids in Saqquara, when I saw a couple of young Egyptian (aka Desert or Pharoah) eagle-owls (Bubo ascalaphus) actually half-way up the pyramid. As I was loooking at those two which weren't facing us, my wife found this one which was. They were obviously quite well camouflaged amongst the deteriorating ruble.|
There doesn't seem to be too many details out there on this bird (habitat, characteristics, etc.). Sorry.
PS for crop and sharpen.

I like captured by you picture so much. Excellent composition, rich (I think, true) colours, very good details and perfect exposure. Only image is soft a bit. Well done and TFS.
