[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe
This is another owl I publish here on TN. In fact, maybe it’s the same one I’ve already published. I took the photos in three or four different occasions, and there were always two of them around, and I can’t tell one from the other. Maybe they are couple; I’m not sure about that either, for I don’t know how to tell the male from the female. Forgive me for my lack of knowledge…

The BG isn't really nice, and focus a bit soft.

Hi Livio
This looks like a Burrowing owl, Athene cunicularia or Coruja-de campo in Brazil.
Go read up some info for us.
A very nice pose, but you oversharpened a bit, try and fade it as not to be so obvious. Also, with this BG, it would be possible to clone out the posts behind him quite easily, and you will have more impact with this image

You made excellent eye contact here Livio and I like the composition. Another option on the BG is to blur it, it is much easier than to start cloning things out.

Very well done and thanks for posting.

Looks like quite a good shot of a Burrowing Owl. I agree with Callie, a bit of post-processing would have improved the image's impact.
