Here another shot of my visit to the flight show of birds in the Rotterdam Zoo.
This owl flew over me and the sound of flight was really amazing.
I hope you like its portrait.

Hallo Vivian,
Afgelopen zondag was ik ook bij de vliegshow.
Deze heb ik ook gezien. Prachtig portret. Erg scherp en fantastische kleuren. Goede compositie. De achtergrond is mooi neutraal.

Hello Viv

The intensity in the eyes is beautiful.The focus is sharp with excellent details.The plumage detail is wonderful.Nicely composed in the frame.TS


Hi Vivian,

Zo, dat is me toch een luid en duidelijk" plaatje van deze OEHOE. Dat moet een imponerend gezicht en vooral geluid zijn geweest. IK VIND DEZE VOGELS INTRIGEREND. Ze kijken op een manier of ze alle wijsheid in pacht hebben. Zal wel door die schitterende ogen komen. En wat dacht je van dat gekleurde verenpak. Je frame met die geweldige POV maken hier een schoonheid van een foto van. Petje af. Groeten en tot TFS BOB
