Sven Začek - Taking off from a frozen landscape


A female Ural Owl taking off after an unsuccessful attempt to catch a vole. During cold days like this morning, when temperatures were under -20 C the owls also have to hunt during the day if there is a scarcity of food, because they need a lot of energy to stay warm during our cold nights.
