and Peter till in abt 2 weeks on the other side :)

Hi Paul,
Geweldig om na anderhalf jaar weer een foto van je te zien.
Apart om deze Laplanduil in het wild te zien. Ook al is de scherpte misschien niet perfect, prachtige compositie in mooie natuurlijke kleuren.
And man, I really look forward to our trip to the Pantanal.
See you,

Hello Paul,
It's very hard bird for taking photos so I think because only I've taken one species few times. Maybe in my countryside live this one species.
Regards, also Paul

Fantastic capture Paul! Great use of wide aperture settings and simple but effective composition. I can hardly imagine more esthetically finished natural setup ... what a brilliant execution indeed. Bravo!

Great co po and eye contact Paul

Paul, you have been away from TN for such a long time I had almost forgotten your name.
It is wonderful to see you posting again.
Needless to say, your picture of a Grey Owl is superb in every respect. Your choice of composition makes room for including the habitat in which you have captured it.
Stay on and bring back some life into this sinking ship, Paul.
