The Dolomites are a great place not only for the enchanted landscapes but also for many animal’s species that inhabit it.
An unusual way of taking this elusive forest dwellers, who is not afraid of man and for this we have even more respect.
Finally, a huge thanks to Samuel Pradetto ( young and talented mountain photographer with whom I made these shots.

    Very cool indeed - subtle lines leading towards the owl and nicely blurred surroundings make the eyes really pop out of the picture.
