Esta es una foto de primer nivel. El bello mochuelo, las ramas cubiertas de líquenes atravesando con elegancia y en diagonal la composición, la luz, el perfecto contacto de la mirada del ave con la del espectador, el foco, todo, Luis, absolutamente todo es m-a-g-i-s-t-r-a-l. Va para ti toda mi admiración por esta obra.

Hello Luis,
Always a pleasure to see what is happening down in beautiful Costa Rica by way of your photos. What a gorgeous and very cute little owl. The awesome eye contact really draws you into the photo. Love the cinnamon and white colors in it's plumage which has a soft almost downy look to it. Outstanding detail and just the right amount of exposure. A real beauty!!

Que mochuelo más bonito Luís! Jamás había visto un mochuelo con este plumaje tan diferente a los que tenemos en España, además te ha quedado realmente bien y bonito. Gran foco, buena luz y un color precioso.
Enhorabuena y muchas gracias por compartirlo.
Un cordial saludo.
