The welcome and goodbye This little owlet lives in the tree outside the main entrance to my work. When i arrive in the morning, it is sat on the same tree branch every day, the end of its 'day' and the start of mine. Conversely, when i leave, it is on the same branch soaking in the last rays of sun before it's 'day' begins, and as mine ends! :) It always make me smile to see the little chap. I once got scared as i did not see it for a week or so in the run, but it came back to it's usual habits! :) Athene brama,Geotagged,Habbel lake,India,John Rowell,Spotted Owlet,Wildlife,Winter,adhocphotographer,bangalore Click/tap to enlarge Promoted
