Tawny is home

I checked out this tree several times this year. But finally, as 2012 fades away (hey, we still exist after the 21st of December!), this Tawny Owl (Strix aluco/Bosuil) is home. What a beauty, look at these eyes, dark as coal! At this time of the year they already start to display and call their shivering "hoooouh ... ho ho ho hoooouh" notes when darkness sets in.

* Canon EOS 7D, 500mm/f4.0; ISO-400, f5.6, 1/100s; tripod.

Mooi dat je de uil hebt kunnen vastleggen. Het is altijd afwachten of hij er weer zit.
