Top Shot (from June 21, 2018): I See You | Photograph by Mohammad Murad (@moe_murad)
“This Pharaoh Eagle-owl chick was hiding amongst the long yellow grass for a while, so I got down on the ground for an eye-level shot, and waited,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Mohammad Murad. “Then the owl felt safe, or curious enough to raise its head and look at me. Since I was on the ground, everything was washed out perfectly giving this flaming effect!”
