Hello Jose,
Congratulations on your first Short-eared Owl image of this year. I can't get over the awesome shots you seem to be able to get from your car, this is just another fine example.
The way you captured it with wings extended is certainly a bonus and the exposure while using flash is great. Good eye contact and beautiful colors. Well done!!

Good use of flash to capture this owl. You have some good detail in the wings and face thanks to the angle you were shooting from.
