Scott Dere is a photographer. One day, while he was taking photos of the owls, an Owl flew over and ended up upon his camera. The most exciting thing about this was that it blended seamlessly with the camouflaged lens.
In an interview, the photographer added this: “In a minute or two, I spotted one perched on my head and wolf-whistled the three other birds. It was an amazing experience when the owl chose to make a landing directly on me! It caused a tingle down my spine for many hours. After a few seconds, it repositioned itself on my lens so I could pivot it slightly to take a photograph. The good news is that Beau can react and make the photo I will treasure for the rest-of-my life.”
This day was a lucky one. The photographer set out to take images of owls with great greys and joined forces with Beaumon Day and Olympus Explorer Brooke Bartleson, who were also photographers. After getting onto Dere’s camera lens, the owl flew off and flew over Brooke’s head. This shocked her.
According to Beau, the owl-appeared to be searching because it would stare at the ground in search of an animal or take it in. Beau also claims that it did not move for a few minutes before deciding to join the team. The crew spent another hour with the bird looking around, looking for its prey, and not forgetting to hit Brooke’s head. She was stunned to see her fall on the floor.
“The Owl was young, and you can tell this by the aspects of the owl, such as the tail feathers. I believe, for one, the young owl was curious about these strange people in his neck of the woods and was looking to see if we were around. Also, he was not at all frightened by us. I’ve had some fantastic encounters with wildlife, and at times it is easy to sense they’re comfortable and at ease in your presence, and you feel like you share feelings for the moment you’re with them.”
The entire shooting took about an hour and included a fly-by of the owl hunting. Even though owls are night-time creatures and can be spotted in excellent camouflage and camouflage, the chance to capture such an owl is very uncommon. Scott Dere is the photographer of the photo with the lens photo. He then uploaded these photos to his Facebook page and immediately became all over the internet.
