Dear CR,
landscape is not my favourite topic (as you can see on http://www.kfoto.de/), but I like lighthouses.
This is in Valetta/ Malta.
Unfortunately without ND and polarizing filter. Will be better next time.

Beautiful photo...great composition and colors.

Here is an image from Healesville Sanctuary in Melbourne, during Spirits of the Sky show ... as I was more interested in capturing these birds, I did not pay attention to the Sanctuary staff when they mentioned the name of this Owl ... can someone help with the name?

Very nice shot Rienzphotoz. Nicely done Sir!
Thanks for the kind words Click ... I'm still hoping someone can help me out with identifying the name of that Owl.


Barking Owls are native to Australia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.

Barking Owls are most common in savannah woodland, although they also inhabit well-forested hill and riverine woodlands. They are widely distributed throughout Australia, but are absent from central areas. They are found in every Australian state/territory except Tasmania. They are not found in the Centre or western deserts.

Although moderately common, Barking Owls are more often heard than seen (typical of most nocturnal birds). Apart from a bark, they may utter a chilling ‘scream’ when they feel threatened.

The Barking Owl is a medium-sized (35 to 45 cm) hawk-owl. They weigh around 700 grams.

I hope Harry has a long life cause it could be devastating if not!  I imagine he's as close as a pet dog.  Just one Harry??

Jack

Hi Jack,

Well, there is another smaller (younger, maybe female) Heron that has been hanging around my house for several months. It's the one Harry chases off if she gets too close or crosses the street to his fishing spot. Harry has the territory across the street and this new arrival (I'll name her Harriet) stays on my side in a tree in my yard. She has watched me fish with Harry and now wants to do it too. When I walk out of my house now, Harriet calls to me (something Harry never does...he's the strong silent type). I have used several loaves of bread with Harriet, but she has not caught one fish with me yet. She also was more afraid but is getting more used to me and bolder. It's funny, but they both now will break up the bread with their beaks and re-arrange the pieces in front of them to entice the fish.

A couple of visitors in the back yard today....

(I think the Blue Jay was trying to take off with the entire feeder)

Lol. It does look like he was trying to fly away with it. Good thing it was securely fastened. ;D
