This Barking Owl was near a bird hide in the town common Townsville QLD Australia. It was digesting the last nights meal and had just burped up a feather ball. It was very placid and I was only 2 metres away, it wanted to sleep so I kicked the ground to attract its attention this was one of many shots as it looked at my antics.
