Brilliant capture, it's like the owl is talking to you. Never seen one of an owl opening it's wings like this. Especially not coming at you. Great job!

Behind The Lens

It is taken in Santa Rosa, La Pampa Argentina
it was six o'clock in the afternoon of a summer day
The owl was about 4 meters high and to compensate the harmony of the scene accompany the shot with the use of the flash of the camera
a Nikon D50 with a Nikon 28-200 f 3.5-5.6 AF lens and a camera flash. edited with PS CS3 and released in RAW mode
I investigated this colony of owls for quite some time, achieving a certain friendship with them, which allowed me to achieve many photos. The sale of the land to build houses the away and it was a pity because they lost their habitat
edited with PS CS3 and released in RAW mode. The scene remains the same as in the picture, do not add or take anything.
In my camera bag
During the first years I had a Nikon D50 and then I switched to Canon. I currently own Canon Eos D40 and Canon Eos 7D Mark II. Canon Lens EF 100-400 4.5-5.6 IS USM, Sigma 10-20mm f / 3.5 EX DC HSM
My humble advice is patience, patience and try to interact with the species without modifying habits or conduct, especially when they are in breeding season. Before starting to take pictures, I spend a lot of time researching the environment. That gives me a better perspective. I HOPE TO UNDERSTAND MY TRANSLATOR ENGLISH. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE OPPORTUNITY
