Carlo, I think these are absolutely stunning! Great lighting and ultra clear and sharp! The autumn foliage makes a beautiful backdrop for the owl. You must have been fairly close to the bird based on the focal length (on the Exif info). How did you manage to get such a good exposure considering the bird was in the shade of the tree branches?

In any event, excellent images!

Very interesting owl. A comical looking face with those huge eyes.
