Interesting Photo of the Day: Owl Swoops Over Camera

Wildlife photographers put in a lot of effort. Their work doesn’t even stop during the night while they rest. The following image by Roy Rimmer is a great example of a nature¬†photographer’s patience paying off:

The photographer used bait and a trigger release to get this well-planned shot of an owl swooping in. The composition is spot on, as the bright white owl takes flight with the dark night sky in the background. Further, the foliage on the ground perfectly frames the owl, giving a great sense of frame within a frame.

Another interesting aspect of the image is how the owl is looking directly at the camera.
