Hello Hernan,
What neat shot of this cute burrowing owl who seems to be taking a little siesta at the moment. To my knowledge we have only had three sightings of this owl here in Ohio, so I have obviously never viewed one in the wild.
I like it's spotted plumage and short rounded head that doesn't seem to have a neck attached to it:) Pretty neat looking bird and captured nicely by your lens.

Hi Hernan.
What a stunning picture of a charming oil. Its closed eyes and pose at whole are simply sweet. I am also impressed with fantastic details of the bird, exceptional clarity and transparency of the image and lovely colours of the shot. Well done and TFS.

Ciao Hernan, gran bell'addormentato su una sola gamba, ottima nitidezza e splendidi dettagli, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hallo Hernan
It is lovely to see the colours and patterns of this owl from so close. The way you captured it with its eyes closed, give us the opportunity to see his eyelids as well. Great point of view, framing and composition. Best regards and thanks for sharing.

Hello Hernan,
Nice to see your images. Remarkable photo and comments. This lovely specie has wonderful natural colors. The contrast against the background is superb. Very nice photo taken from a excellent POV.
Thanks for sharing!

Bonjour Hernan,
Voilà une image drôle et plaisante. La chouette avait le repos mérité! Quelle superbe image, couleurs fines et naturelles, une présentation décentrée judicieuse et une excellente netteté. Bravo!

Perfect in every sense and funny too!!!

Hello Hernan,
A posting with the same species of owl this time, but in other circumstances.
Great sharpness, details and beautiful natural colours. Wonderful background. Nice to see it standing on one leg.
