Another day of lockdown draws to a close so we thought we’d share this amazing scene by @ranger_sam.za...! This Verreaux’s eagle-owl seems to be enjoying the view as much as us... ☺️

Many are facing uncertain futures during these unprecedented times and our thoughts are with everyone impacted. We are also facing the same challenges as travel plans are cancelled and Kruger is closed.
If you are in lockdown or self-isolation, downloading the KrugerExplorer App can immerse you in the natural wonder of Kruger from the comfort of home and be a superb educational tool for children unable to attend school.
If you love our posts and content then you’ll love the KrugerExplorer App, and we’d be so incredibly grateful for the support of our followers during this time.
Our thanks and well-wishes to all,

Owl or a alien ? Comment below 😱
Owls are birds from the order Strigiformes, which includes about 200 species of mostly solitary and nocturnal birds of prey typified by an upright stance, a large, broad head, binocular vision, binaural hearing, sharp talons, and feathers adapted for silent flight. Exceptions include the diurnal northern hawk-owl and the gregarious burrowing owl.

Good morning!! I hope you’re all doing ok? I’ve been thinking about doing some process painting videos... maybe filming some mini tutorial vids? Would that be of interest to anyone?? 💗🎨🦉🎨💗 PS also, it’s apparently Sunday today! And it’s now British Summer Time!! (Trying to get my head around losing all concept of time/date/month/year... and whether this even really matters any more in our current surreal reality??)
Papa Owl. Watching over his family. Eagle Owls usually nest on the ground. With the male showing the female a few potential locations before she settles on her favorite. They will often use the same location year after year. They do not build a nest like many other birds. #Owl#Owls#EagleOwl#Male#Nature#Outdoor#wildlife#UAEwildlife
European eagle-owl (Bubo bubo)
~ colour pencils on paper
The world’s largest owl with a wingspan up to 188 cm. It can fly almost soundlessly due to the very soft plumage. The eagle-owl used to be a common bird in forests all over Europe, but the numbers have decreased over many years as a result of human activity; habitat areas are heavily modified, exposing the owls to the risk of collisions with pylons, wind turbines and vehicles, as well as a depletion of native prey numbers due to ongoing habitat degredation and urbanisation.
Hubroen regnes som en sterkt truet art i Norge; den har vært fredet siden 1971, og den norske bestanden er vurdert til 900-1370 individer.
Hubroen er sensitiv for forstyrrelser, særlig i hekkesesongen. Både tap av leveområder pga vindkraft, kraftledninger, veier og hyttefelt, samt nedgang i bestandene av byttedyr grunnet gjengroing, fortrenger hubroen fra dens naturlige habitat.
I thought I would share this tender moment of beauty with everyone during this difficult time. Finding and capturing the beauty in our natural world is something that gives me peace and comfort, no matter what the circumstances are. Please stay safe, friends!! Burrowing Owlets
