The Eurasian Eagle-Owl (Bubo bubo) is a species of eagle owl resident in much of Eurasia. It is sometimes called the European Eagle-Owl and is, in Europe where it is the only member of its genus besides the Snowy Owl (B. scandiacus), occasionally abbreviated to just Eagle-Owl. In India, it is often called the Indian Great Horned Owl, though this may cause confusion with the similarly named American bird. It is one of the largest species of owls. (From Wikipedia)

Très belle vue, le regard du hibou est impressionnant. La profondeur de champ est bien gérée.
Dommage qu'on ne voit pas mieux les pattes de l'animal !!

I skip your other pictures to comment this one, wonderful portrait of that nocturnal and quiet killer
The photo has a good quality, very sharp with fine colors
It helps a lot to control the proliferation of rats and mouses in urban areas
Have a good sunday Eleu

A good capture of this owl, very sharp details of feathers. The piercing eyes are also a fine part of the picture.

This is a wonderful and impressive bird and its eyes look like they're on fire. I wouldn't mess around with this guy. This is a fine picture taken at a perfect moment when the owl looks straight at us. The light is great and the background is sufficiently blurred not to be disturbing but still giving us an idea of the environment.

I find owls very beautiful birds. The different patterns of his plumage are shown very well here. Beautiful red eyes looking towards the camera.
Very well presented with the blurred background.
Best regards, Paul

Well taken with this glance and these colorec eyes, perfect sharpness, maybe too cropped on the bottom, a detail.

Fine Eurasian Eagle Owl image for the feather pattern and details, with piercing eyes, and blurred background to avoid interference.
I have a Screech Owl living somewhere in the large oaks in my backyard but have not seen it yet, only its unique sound at night.
Have an excellent end of summer and hope you are surviving the unusual monsoon weather,
PS: Sacramento is often thought-of as a bumpkin, boring town by travelers zooming by on the freeways from the Bay area, or SoCal. It really is a very interesting town for history buffs.

Superb snapshot. Thanks to the soft light the Owl's plumage is rendered incredibly well, with great feather detail, and it's also lovely and sharp. I particularly like the differential focus, with the bird standing out against well blurred background. Excellent bird photo!!! Greetings, Miro

A fabulous owl in pic., Eleu, well taken this portrait of the bird.
It's been years now since i saw one owl in Israel, not an easy task for a city-guy like myself.
Fine details on.

Nice composition and well worked, the detail here being immaculate such a fabulous Owl portrait. You really nailed the gorgeous eyes perfectly as strong focal point, above all I love the eye contact and catch lights. Superb catch, Congrats

Fantastic, crisp shot of this magnificent animal. Native Americans called owls, "Night Eagles," and they have fascinated me for years. Thanks for sharing!
