Long-eared Owl (Asio otus) in Zurich, Katzensee

Was very surprised when I’ve seen the long-eared owl end of April in the wild and the first time in my life 🙂 Was not that easy to recognize and quite far away, which had an impact on the picture-quality.

A few days later they where also hunting in the evening. I was a bit too tired or whatever to increase the shutter speed. …

Beginning of Mai then, I’ve found a quite small one very close to the first spot. My little son 6y recognized it very hidden in a tree.

And the day after then the juveniles of the one above even harder (manual focus etc.) to catch – but if they open their eyes 🙂
