Scops owl

Although we've seen lots of birds of prey during our vacation, this tiny Scops Owl was by far the cutest.

When you put your two fists on top of eachother, you have about the size of this little owl.

Shot, straight off the balcony of one of the rooms at Hoya Hoya Tsonga Lodge in Kruger National Park - South Africa. (Thanks, Karen!). It was nice to shoot at eye-level, for once!


500mm handheld (I've developed some serious biceps during this vacation! :-)


Wishing you all the most wonderful weekend!
