Spectacled Owl FeatureThe spectacled owl is a large tropical owl native to Mexico, Central America, and South America. This species is largely nocturnal, starting activity right around the time of last light at dusk and usually being back on their roosts for the day around first light.The spectacled owl is typically the largest and most dominant owl in its range, with the larger great horned owl rarely venturing into true rainforest habitats. Most hunting starts with the owl perched on a branch and scanning the area, then dropping with a quick pounce when prey is located. It preys principally on a wide array of mammals, eating almost anything type that is nocturnally active. Various rodents may be primary but virtually any type of small mammal in its habitat is vulnerable.More Like This

There you can find useful advice, how to track down your own artwork and find out, if it is misused.
Furthermore we set up two new rules.
1. We do not accept photographies without camera data anymore.
2. According to the new rule, we decrease the amount of submittions per day from 5 to 3, because we have to look at every photography, if
