[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Someone is watching you! Not all owls are cute looking and this one scares me a lot with mustard yellow color and deep dark eyes! The huge Spotted wood-owl, the guardian of the night at Taman negara rainforest is checking what we are doing there in the middle of the night. Well, kind enough to let us take a photo of it. This is close relative of Tawny Owls of Europe and Barred Owls of North America. Spotted Wood-owl has an extremely large range however only can be seen in Southeast Asia.

Hello Emin,

It must have been pretty difficult to capture this photo at night; but you managed it very well. Nice details & exposure.
