Hidden World

A tawny owl hiding within branches of a evergreen tree

My habit of carrying my camera as much as possible paid off: In the middle of the dark Swedish winter, I was cycling through a forest within Uppsala, when I suddenly heard continuous alarm calls of small birds. I knew this meant there was a predator, most likely an owl nearby them. The light was dropping fast, so I began searching every branch for an owl.
