Pearl-spotted Owlet

Now you see me …


Now you don’t …


I was very lucky to get these two shots of a pearl-spotted owlet in a thorn tree at the Tswalu reserve. You can see from the second shot that it has eyes on the back of its head – actually tufts of black feathers – to create the illusion that it is still watching you when it has turned away from you. Very cool.
