[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Got this little beauty late one evening in Corbett as the s un was setting. The camoflage was so good, I almost did not see him. We drove right by him, when I realised that the branch with eyes was an owl, so we backed up for this shot.

I tried to find more details on this species, but have not managed to find articles anywhere and I dont have my book with me right now. Will update on specifics later.

What beautiful picture, i like very much te pose...nice job Liezel

Hi Liezel
He is a little beauty! I like his pose since he is looking right at you with his sweet face. The lighting is nice and soft and gives him such a soft look. He has a interesting colour pattern. Nicely composed.

Superbe spécimen!

"The branch with eyes" -- now that is a good one, Liezel!
The match between the branch and the owl is just perfect; no wonder you missed it at first glance :-).
Excellent capture with the bird looking down at you with curious eyes.

Hi Liezel,
The left eye is abit soft due to the shallow depth of field; the latter is my only nit in this wildlife capture.

great, though not focused enough, tFS Ori

Bonjour Liezel,
Au-delà de ce splendide regard perçant, surveillant vraisemblablement une proie, ce qui me frappe dans cette image c'est le mimétisme entre l'oiseau et son perchoir d'observation.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Liezel,
This bird is so beautiful.
Excellent capture.
Superb composition, crystal clear detail and colours.
Regards, Krzysztof.

What a beauty indeed, Liezel.
That eye contact is like a magnet.
Hard to take your eyes off the face of this magnificent bird.
Very sharp details with absolutely wonderful light.
I like the warm colors.
