My first Owl and the huge role that camouflage plays in the natural world. This is about all I could get with the camera I had on that day.

Happy New Year 2010 !

Hola Umar: A pesar de la lejanía se distingue bien la especie; de seguro si te acercas más se vuela; bonita toma y felicidades por tu primer lechuza...saludos.

Ooohhh, this owl is wonderful, Umar, and I think it was an impressive moment to see this bird sitting there and looking at you.
Thanks, I like it very much.
All the best for 2010,

Hi Umar,

You started the year off with a wonderful surprise. I love this little Owl and you have captured him perfectly. Because he is so sharp and the colors are so fine it is easy to spot him even though he is well camouflaged. He looks great in this wonderful natural rocky setting. I'm shocked - no flowers growing there!


Hello Umar
congratulations for your first owl, you have taken this bird nicely in a beautiful surroundings with great details i love the eye contact and his camouflage colors
Have a good night

Hello Umar,
This is a fantastic capture of the Little Owl very sharply in focus but camouflaged among the stone walls. A beautiful composition too and lovely natural colours. Very well done!
Many thanks and regards, Ulla
