Here are 3 reasons I like this photograph:
(1) I love owls. This one is a Short-Eared owl. They are somewhat diurnal, more active at dusk and hunt at night. It’s one of my preferred owls due to the color of its eyes.
(2) The frame tells the story of the wise and foolish, mysterious and silent, watching your every move.
(3) I made the photograph in its natural habitat and not in a controlled situation (e.g. zoo).
