Hello Mario,
A top quality image by every aspect. Your focus is tac sharp allowing us to view this beautiful owl in exceptional detail. Love those large eyes with their intense gaze. You could not ask for any better exposure and your colors are well saturated and natural. I really like the vertical composition and clean BG. as well.

Awesome picture Mario,greta capture.
Thanks for sharing.
