  1. omg !! I envy you… just before this Diwali while sitting on a terrace at midnight we saw a fully grown Barn Owl but we could see it just for 10 seconds. Wanted to see it upclose badly…though I was lucky to spot Eurasian Eagle owl from a distance of 3-4 metre and a huge brown fish owl since then. Would love to see a barn owl upclose ๐Ÿ˜‰ just like u did !!

  2. Oh my. I’ve always known barn owls to be magnificent creatures, but these intimate shots show more of their beauty to me than even I knew was there. They’re not just beautiful, but are also living, vulnerable beings. What an amazing thing to gain the trust of such a bird!
