|1st October 2011, Fraser’s Hill, Pahang.|
A lifer from Fraser’s Hill, the Brown Wood Owl. She’s a large, magnificent bird with beautiful colours , full vermiculations on the belly and barrings on the tail feathers. She would perch quietly waiting for the opportunity to swoop down on the large rhinocerous beetles, grabbing them in mid air.
It’s just amazing how stealthy they are, you neither hear any flapping of the wings nor the whooshing sound of the bird going through the air…… everything achieved in complete silence.
