Little Owl by Brutus Östling
The renowned Swedish nature photographer Brutus Östling was with us recently. He came for a few days to photograph Lammergeiers and vultures from the hide and also found time to take this splendid shot of a Little Owl from one of our hides on the plains of Lleida, in Catalonia.
See more about him and his work at Brutus Östling’s website here.
Brutus Östling is the only nature photographer to have won the World Wildlife Fund’s Panda Book of the Year prize twice.
The first prize was for “Life on the Wing“
And more recently he won the prize the second time with “The Kingdom of the Eagle”
He was also Nature Photographer of the year in 2006.
Hopefully he’ll be thinking about how to portray some of the birds of northeast Spain in his next work of art.
