    Here i`d like to show you some pics from my 2017 project:
    it was very amazing for me, finding a (active) quarry with a nest of (juvenile) eagles owls.
    i spent a lot of time there last year. ;)

    Wow, these are amazing
     
  5. Wonderful Eric. Love the Eagle owls. The third image is from a perspective not normally seen. Well done.
     
  6. I agree, like 3 best. I would like 2 more if the tree growing behind the owl was not there.
     
  7. They really stand out from the background. Well done!
     
  8. very very well done...............
     
  9. What a treat and I can see why you spent so much time there. Not a subject I have ever seen in the wild.

    Thank you all for your friendly words.. and yes it was an really amazing time for me with these young ealge owls (bubo bubo) around me.
    most of the time, i was only sitting and saw what they are doing.

    But of course everytime with my camera ready to shot ;)

    What an amazing find, and your shots are incredible. I can’t pick a favorite, they’re all great.
     
  13. This is my first time seeing these beautiful owls, and your images are just stunning! I love the tones in those last three shots.

    Thank you all !
    Now this one, i think it`s not so common, that you have three eagle owl in one pic

    36803345415_e83d0e79d4_b.

    and if you look closely at the feet of the flying eagle owl, you can see something there:

    thats it: rest from a rabbit with a little bit vegetables ;-)))))
