As we go on safaris loaded with DSLRs ( camera)  and binoculars, we think we are going to watch the forests and its residents .

However to the contrary  the enchanting forest has numerous sentinels and watchful eyes beautifully camouflaged WATCHING “every move you make, every breath you take”.

I unveil one such PEEPING TOM . The pictures tell it all.

A casual observer  will only see a Palash /  Dhak ( Flame of the forest tree: Butea Monosperma) tree. But I implore you look closer . Do not only search tigers forests have many more secrets hidden in their bosom.

I love Owls, their entire personality is overpowering. Their eyes are like powerful searchlights which bore into  your very soul.

all eyes
                                    all eyes 

When you go for a safari ask your guides to spot out owls for you. They are territorial and thus regularly  inhabit the same tree hollows.
