Standing in my balcony earlier today and suddenly I see two dark piercing eyes staring right back at me from between the coconut tree branches. Was pleasantly shocked when I realized what I was looking at – a cute barn owl from nowhere and it appeared quite happy in the shade. I had to make a mad scramble for the camera hoping it wouldn’t fly away as those pesky crows were trying to peck it and the poor owl tried to fight back. It finally vanished in the evening. Maybe it will visit again tomorrow who knows. I liked that beautiful plumage and enjoyed these priceless moments. For the superstitious folk out there, what does this foretell? An impending death ? newfound wisdom ? incoming wealth lol ? or time to "upgrade" my hifi gear?
