Hi Luis,
This is the most impressive bird I ever encounter.
Your picture is very good. I wish you could have the whole bird in the frame.
I was lucky to see it once in Guanacaste but not long enough for a decent picture.
I hope I will meet you once in your beautiful country.

Wow, what a fantastic picture of this interesting Owl, Luis!
Those eyes looking upward are truly fascinating.
Thanks for sharing this super image.

Hello Luis
An excellent portrait of this Spectacled Owl. Details, colour and lighting is great. I love the way he is perched and looking off into the distance.

Hace un buen tiempo que estoy alejado de TN pero intento nuevamente volver, como a los viejos amores, un poco tarde te deseo un feliz año 2016 para ti y tu familia.
Maravillosa esta obra con un magnífico Búho de Anteojos en los claroscuros del follaje. Felicitaciones, Luis!!!

Hello Luis,
What a gorgeous owl image you have presented to us. The unique facial markings in contrast to those big yellow eyes are simply stunning. Very sharp focus displaying exceptional detail and clarity. Colors are well saturated and exposure is perfect. Great work!!

Hello Luis,
Excellent achievement; beautiful species. I haven't seen (most probably)this Owl here in TN. Very nice exposure as well as color and details.
Thanks for sharing,
