[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]
This medium-sized owl is easily identified
the whiteness of their plumage.
When the inn, calls attention to your face
white, heart-shaped, in contrast to the
wings gray and orange, but in flight, plumage
predominantly white makes it look something

Hello Edgar,
Nice kompozition with amazing details,perfect focus on eye splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors.
Best regards

wonderful species. good lighting makes the bird clear. tfs.

Beautiful photo Joao! Interesting subject, very good composition and great sharpness. I especially like the cluster of the snails (Theba pisana?) on the log. A common sight near wetlands also in Cyprus.
In my WS I have a proposal without the wire and without the red colour in the eyes. I tried also a little more brightness. I hope that you will like it.

Boa tarde João!
Bela foto deste impressionante exemplar. Excelente nitidez e belas cores.
Estou ansioso por vê-las!
Grande abraço

Maybe this is a french owl? it seems it likes escargots :)

TFS this great portrait

Bonjour Joao,
Interesting owl picture. I like the horizontal framing and the pose of the bird. I suppose that it might have been interested in the snails which are fixed on the post on which the bird is posed. Well chosen decentred composition and fine sharpness.
Kind regards
