Hi Bruno,

How did you manage to get so close to this owl? The details of the face, eye, lashes, and plumage are wonderful. The amazing yellow eye looks like it was painted on him. The colors are deep and rich but are so different from the two in the other picture. A very nice setting and composition.

Hi Bruno-

Great shot of this owl. I understand how you can get this because I also use the Canon S5. I will add a note to Jane about this.

Best regards,

Hello Bruno,
Wonderful shot of this owl.Beautiful colour and detail.Excellent POV and DOF. A very well composed portrait.TFS
Best regards Siggi

Ciao Bruno, great capture of beutiful owl with fantastic yellow eye, very well done, ciao Silvio

really beautiful bird, my friend.How did you get so close? Are they usually unafraid of people? because here all wildlife runs like crazy when human approach (probably because the loong and consistent time of killing and hunting them)

Cheers, Petru

Ola Brunao,
Very beautiful portait vith excellent sharpness, colours and details.TFS.


I can see why one has added this to a fav. Had I room I might also be tempted...The offset works well and even though close in colours the backdrop, it still sticks out so very well...you oplay the guitar as well as the camera?

Hello Bruno,
Very beautiful photo in very well saturated colours. Great sharp details and a good low POV and composition.
I know these owls are not so shy. I photographed a couple of these owls in your country in the Pantanal with a 300 mm lens sitting on a fence (see the photo here on TN).

Amigo Bruno,
Belíssima nitidez, impressionante definição. Belo momento, parece que a corujinha estava a petiscar? (parece ter o bico com uma coloração diferente).
Excelente perspectiva, bem apanhada, parece que está habituada às lentes fotográficas.

Um grande abraço,
com amizade

Hi Bruno.
You have pictured a true beauty. I like rich impressive colours of the image so much as well as nice details of the bird and surrounding grass. Well done and TS.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW! How did you do this, Bruno?
This is an awesome shot!
Very well done!

Hi Bruno,

Very good shot at this owl. The eye is so sharp and the plumage is so well exposed. Excellent work and TFS.

Have a wonderful weekend and best regards,

Well contasted colours.
You are good at this.
Mario from Canada.

Merhaba Bruno,bu kuşların gözlerinin rengi her zaman çok ilginç gelmiştir bana.Sen göz netliğini çok iyi belirlemişsin.Ellerine sağlık :)

Hello Bruno,

I hear owls in the trees when I am in bed and have occasionally managed to capture them on the roof-tops but the thought of a burrowing owl is quite a differnt concept! Do these beautiful birds still hunt at night?

Excellent details of plummage showing the various colours and the soft, fluffy textures. The eye, of course, as with all owls, is dominant.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Ciao Bruno,
splendido ritratto di rapace notturno, eccellenti POV e composizione, ottima definizione e molto belli e ben saturati i colori.
Saluti dall'Italia
