I’ve personally always wanted to see an Eastern Screech Owl in the wild – but after seeing this winning shot below – there’s a really good reason why they’re so damn hard to spot.
National Geographic just announced the winners of its 2013 Traveler Photo Contest – and this owl shot by Graham McGeorge is one of them. I mean seriously, could it have been framed any better?
The grand prize shot (shown below) was captured by photographer Wagner Araujo, who snapped it while attending the Brazilian Aquathlon championship in Manaus.
I personally believe the owl got robbed.
