Brisbane, January 2015.
Excuse us Mr. Owl we are fans of your kind. Can we disturb you to have an autograph?
And with this look one usually can't! This young burrow owl and its sibling were hidden in a tree of Brisbane Lone Pine Sanctuary, resting during the day, when we came to observe it. When it turn to give this look none can held a shiver down the spine!
Sorry Mr. Owl, but thanks a lot for the shot!
