Species: Scops Owl | Location: Kruger, South Africa
I was on a bird photography trip in South Africa. We hadn't seen many owls during the trip. The guide knew of one that spent some time in a campground. We headed there and got out of the vehicle. Finally he found the owl. After many gyrations trying to get a clear shot, I was able to take a decent picture of the owl staring at me.

About The Photographer
I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my web site and personal presentations.
