Hello Peter,
Excellent photograph of Female Ural Owl, excellent sharpness and details, excellent composition, excellent background and lighting.

Hallo Peter
This is a very beautiful bird that you captured here! The Ural Owl is unknown to me. It has many prominent and most beautiful features like the lovely striped patterns in its feathers, the shape of its face, its striking tailpiece but most of all the eyes that tells a story of its own. They have so much feeling in them and almost looks heartsore. I love the natural sunlight and the direct eye-contact the owl has with you. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
