Amazing Photos from the Wildlife Photographer of the Year People’s Choice Award Shortlist » f6b3271e1c7fbb09cb3e5e219a926efa

Jan spotted this small southern whitefaced owl in a tree at a campsite in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa. These owls have black-tipped ‘ear’ tufts and usually lay their eggs in the old nests of other birds. Jan was able to frame a shot of this striking bird looking down at him as it didn’t seem bothered by the comings and goings of the campsite.
