[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]
"The Burrowing Owl (Athene cunicularia) is a small, long-legged owl found throughout open landscapes of North and South America. Burrowing owls can be found in grasslands, rangelands, agricultural areas, deserts, or any other dry, open area with low vegetation. They nest and roost in burrows, such as those excavated by prairie dogs (Cynomys spp.). Unlike most owls, burrowing owls are often active during the day, although they tend to avoid the mid-day heat. Most hunting is still done from dusk until dawn, when their owl apomorphies are most advantageous.".

Hi Bruno.
Once more cute pair from you. Details of both birds are great as well as lights and colour reproduction. I welcome excellent selection of the aperture value (DOF). Framing of the scene is disputable a bit but it is not a point at all. My best wishes and TFS.
