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

This owl is a winter visitor and for that reason is the occasion to photograph it. Nesting on the ground sometimes come to the poles for preening and stretching.The picture was taken from the car.For me the funny of the expression is the stone looking...

Have a good day and thanks for looking...
