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.
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.
