Sometimes, the cutest things on earth are hidden from our eyes. But thanks to modern technology, most of the times these hidden things are brought in to focus. Recently, we came across with such a cute picture of a tiny owl hidden behind a giant mushroom. It was pretty and it seemed that many people were also awed with the picture. A few hours after releasing it, the picture went viral and might even have appeared in your News Feed! So, we thought of interviewing (She has done this interview few years back) the photographer, Tanja Brandt to know the story behind the picture. Speaking to us she said,
“Poldi, our little owl is 1,5 years old. I got him when he was five months old. He didn’t want to come out of his egg and he was very small, the smallest. His six sisters were all hatched, and as he was the last to be born, days after the others, he was very small. I also have a Harris Hawk named Phönix, a Weissgesichtseule named Gandalf, and a snow owl named Uschi”.
“I think my animals like to be photographed. Why? Because I am always outside with my camera and with my animals. So we get to walk together, have fun, go on adventures, have little breaks… We take some pictures and after the animals can play again as we keep going. I know my animals very well and I can see their state of mind. If I go out with just one of my animals, the other gets antsy and wants to be with us. We have a lot of fun together.”
“I’ve always loved animals, since I was a baby, unlike the rest of my family. When I was little, I found every sort of pet and then hid it for my parents. I love the beauty, power, loyalty, courage, and friendship of animals. Many people could learn from them.”
It is a blessing to live with animals. They have much to offer us and that is why it is important to protect this beautiful mother nature.
So, If you enjoyed the pictures of our tiny owl then don’t forget to leave your thoughts on this!
