    Was waiting, waiting, waiting behind the bird for just a glimpse. After 20 minutes it slowly turned towards me and starred me for a few seconds and flew away.!. In that few seconds, with its look, it asked me "who is in my territory".? and it turned as one of my iconic photographs so far. After this photograph in my photographer's friends circle, I will be known as "Owlet Ranjith"..!..Strange name though.!.

    This owl's expression is so sassy and that is what I love most about it. Your timing and light is perfect on this bird but how the owl looks at us allows us to create a narrative of its personality and "hoo" this owl is...
