    This is such a fantastic capture Mauro.  Wonderful detail, warm tones and bokeh.  I of course love the eyes and beak peeking out from his nest.  Well seen and photographed.  Faved.  :)

    @Mauro Mozzarelli  I love all nature, and especially owls.  We don't have Great Grey Owls in southern California, but there are some up north. I have a friend near Yosemite who has spotted them and sometimes sends me pictures.
