Photographing wildlife is a hobby of mine, that I truly love. I hope you enjoy my efforts to capture the beauty of creation.
That look! I have heard that comment a lot from this capture. It is one of my favorite Great Gray Owl captures I have made. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Lizzy and I am thrilled you enjoy my efforts to capture the beauty I see in my part of the world.
SteveWaldren I wish you success in your attempts to see this most amazing owl. I had never seen one in the wild until this past winter. I ended up actually seeing two different birds and was able to photograph both as well. Hope to see your captures of one of these here someday.
Aakash, the ID of some birds can be a bit difficult when it comes to subspecies, we can rule out Woodland Kingfisher (Halcyon senegalensis) because it lacks the black on the lower beak. Although I have not studied this bird, I would lean strongly on Halcyon leucocephala
Welcome to Project Noah, I wish I could help you with an ID of your insect, but insects are not my strong suit, especially when it comes to ones from your part of the world. I suspect someone will get you the correct ID shortly.
