Indian eagle-owl
The Indian eagle-owl, also called the rock eagle-owl or Bengal eagle-owl (Bubo bengalensis), is a species of large horned owl found in the Indian Subcontinent. They were earlier treated as a subspecies of the Eurasian eagle-owl. They are found in hilly and rocky scrub forests, and are usually seen in pairs. They have a deep resonant booming call that may be heard at dawn and dusk. They are typically large owls, and have "tufts" on their heads. They are splashed with brown and grey, and have a white throat patch with black small stripes.

Hi, Manaswi. This is a nice photograph of the Indian Eagle owl in its natural habitat. Good sharpness, exposure and clarity in spite of the fact that the photograph has been taken from a distance. Thanks for sharing

Hello Manaswi,
How nice to see your Indian Eagle-owl in it's natural habitat. Love those big eyes and intense gaze. Sharply focused while displaying it's camouflaged plumage in wonderful detail. Colors are well saturated and exposure is great considering the bright lighting you had to deal with.
"Happy New Year"
