[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was early in the morning in the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve..expectancy was in the air of sighting a tiger after we saw fresh pug marks on the tracks..suddenly, the guide diverted our attention to a thick undercover beside a stream..at first, I could not even see a thing..upom fixing my gaze I could make out a silhouette of something big sitting underneath the thick buush besides the stream... A little closer & i was directly in the line of those hypnotic eyes..... A Big Brown Fish owl starring at me..

Some info:

Widespread resident of Indian Subcontnent but rarely recorded in Pakistan. Combination of tawn & buff color with duller brown underparts; fine dark brown streaks on crown, mantle & scapulars.
Habitat: Forest & wel, wooded areas near water.

Hello Satirtha,
Very nice photo of this Brown Fish Owl in excellent sharpness and beautiful natural colours. Impressive eyes.

Hi Satirtha. What a very tough looking owl this is. You managed focus right on his eyes well for all the branches. It's a very special environment shot. Nice colours and nicely framed. Well done! TFS Trevor
