Travel to all of you a huge hug to all of you try to narrow them dear fellow TrekNature , site for many it is a kind of second home. A hug covering all the world's ecosystems , and found, to each of the members of this international adventure .
Happy New Year 2014 , women and men committed to this great tribute to the Creation, this praise to the work of our Creator trying to be captured with every picture you love.

Nice note :
This likeable literally came to my feet, December 30, 2013 . He was on the ground under a Juniperus sabina ( creeping pine growth, exotic species in Argentina ) .
It was but an old acquaintance of my Argentina land, "Lechucita de las Vizcacheras".

I chose this photograph to greet the new year in 2014 because I'm in it , I will see my flash shooting standing in the eyes of this little owl .

In next pictures I will share with you I will add extensive technical note on "Athene cunicularia "

For those who like cinematography , the character "Digger", in the film "Legend of the Guardians : The Owls of Ga'Hoole" ( Australian- American computer- animated epic fantasy -adventure film released in 2010 ) is a "Burrowing Owl" -Athene cunicularia-

Hallo Hernan
And a great 2014 to you too!
Very striking classical image of an owl with yellow eyes that surely has magnetism to it. I like the way the little owl is looking up at you. Thanks for sharing photo and also for interesting note. Best regards.

Hi Hernan.
What a clear shot and amazing eye-contact with lovely bird. Clarity of the image is exceptional as well as sharp details of the owl and true colours of the picture. Warm regards and best wishes for New Year.

I immediately noticed that you are getting reflected in the eye of the bird, Hernan. :)
Happy New Year!
The close-up image in frontal format is a fantastic portrait of this Owl. Your focus and complete attention on its eyes is commendable and you have done a fantastic job of it.
Thanks and regards.

Lovely! Thanks for pointing out you are there in reflection.

Happy New Year!


Hola Hernán,
Face to face with the evil. :-) Even in difficult light conditions, excellent photograph. Very effective composition with full eye contact with the owl and an excellent rulebreaker (because the owl doesn't look into the frame, but in spite of this, the composition's exceptional and very pleasant). Very, very good photo, huge congratulations!
I wish you & your loved ones happy and prosperous new year, kind regards and hugs from your Hungarian friend living in Ireland. :-)
