Eagle Owl

he Eagle Owl is a very large and powerful bird, but despite its name it is generally smaller than for instance the Golden Eagle. It is the largest species of owl with a wingspan of up to 200 cm. Adults can weigh in excess of 4 kg, in comparison the common Barn Owl weighs about 500 g. It mainly feeds on small mammals but will take prey up to the size of foxes and young deer. It will also take many other birds including other birds of prey.

In Denmark, this owl is nearly extinct - this picute was taken at Copenhagen Zoo.

Hi Dan,
Beautiful eyes, an amazing colour. A nice portrait, I like the tight composition, it works very well with the subject. Good detail, just a little soft, excellent light and colours. Lovely shot.

Hi Dan
