A Marsh Owl (Asio capensis) hunting down a "Flying Ant" (Termite) during a downpour. A lifer for me. My Sigma 100-300mm f/4 got soaked aiming it out the car window. The Marsh Owl is a species of owl which is mainly a resident breeder in Africa and Madagascar. This species is part of the larger grouping of owls known as typical owls, Strigidae, which contains most species of owl. The other grouping is the barn owls, Tytonidae. Marsh Owl nests on the ground on open marshy areas, laying 2-4 eggs amongst tussocks. It hunts over open country, often by day. Its food is mainly insects, but it will take small mammals, such as rodents and birds. The Marsh Owl is 35–37 cm (14–14.5 in) in length with an 82–99 cm (32–39 in) wingspan.
