Thank you for sharing.
There are more than 225 owl species in the world, divided into two families. Barn owls with their distinct heart-shaped facial disks make up the Tytonidae family, while all other owl species are in the Strigidae or typical owl family.

I was done with the monotonous routine over the period of 3.5-4 Months. Doing the same things every day, during the quarantine days had stressed out my mind. The last time I was out, exploring the wilderness was on March 8, with @tapan.kane
It had been so long since I had the pleasure of a normal outing, thanks to the pandemic.
Then one fine day, me and one of my birding partners, @shivanand_hiremath1973 decided to fall out, finally, to witness beauty of the grasslands, in the monsoon season (offcourse with all precautions). We spent the whole day in the lush green grasslands of solapur district. With a bit of rain, strong breeze and wonderful sightings, it was a very pleasant day after so long.
Definitely a stressbuster !!
Sharing few images I made throughout the day, making most of it!!

On the way to Cobar we had a very quick stop at the Putta Bucca Wetlands in Mudgee to look for Plum-headed Finch (lifer). Luckily we got onto them fast and this guy sat right outside the bird hide for us.

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

This is a group of Green Bee-Eaters huddled together in the first rays of dawn in Ranthambore National Park. Some months ago, I shared a similar image showing another group of birds from the front where you can see the faces, and had not given much consideration of this image at the time. (How often do you see wildlife photos where you can’t see the faces of your subject?)
Today I stopped to take a longer look at the RAW file and re-discovered why I clicked the shutter. While it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, I rather like it. 😉
