– A safari guide Roan du Plessis took a picture of something that was hiding in African trees
– We know the answer. Now share with your friends to test them!
The creature was said to be sitting as still as a statue when the photograph was taken in Africa
Hmm, it looks like there’s nothing memorable about this photo. But if you look closer you’ll see the African scops owl sitting like a statue here
It was sitting as still as a statue when the photograph was taken – typical behavior for the animal. So this owl is a real stealth creature!
That’s how Roan commented on the situation
“I would by no means consider myself a professional photographer, but the opportunities for capturing amazing photos are endless because of what I do.
“I was on safari with guests when I took these photos. I wanted to demonstrate how incredible the trackers are at spotting animals. I love the mopane leaves surrounding the owl in these photos and the colours it adds.
“I like the composition and colours of the photos and how it demonstrates the potential camouflage of these vulnerable predators. It's not unlikely that I would be able to take more photos like this one because this is typical behaviour for the scops owl.
“That is, of course, if we can find them.”
