Fire look

Uploaded: October 24, 2006


Photo is taken in the falconry center, near Sibenik, Croatia. This young owl was found in the woods injured from man stupidity. Somebody tried to stop it from running away and cut it's wings feathers so it couldn't fly.
Now after 2 years it's feathers are finally grown and in a year it will be back in the wilderness:)
