[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A shot from a while ago, rented a hide to make shots of this little owl. The experience of an owl so close and at ease makes the picture of secondary importance

Hallo Jeroen,
Prachtige foto. Het uiltje goed ge´soleerd van de mooie gele achtergrond. Erg fraaie compositie en haarscherp.

Hi Jeroen,
Excellent photograph! Perfect BG with stunning composition
Details are excellent.
Thanks for sharing,
Best wishes,

Hello Jeroens
An excellent portrait of this tiny owl, it looks similar to our Burrowing Owls we have here. Nice sharp detail show off his lovely plumage, excellent DOF and POV. Always great to see different species of owls.

Hello Jeroen,
I can sense your excitement of being so close to such a beautiful creature as it perches in complete ease unaware of your presence. Outstanding image and of the highest quality. Love the wonderful eye contact and fine detail that you managed to obtain. It's plumage is quite lovely and I really like the clean light yellow BG.
