Owls have long been the symbol of wisdom and regal natural beauty. These photos, by Bangkok-based photographer Sompob Sasi-Smit capture the private lives of owls in a breathtaking level of detail rarely seen by humans. Owl photography can be difficult, especially because of their amazing camouflage! But when a photographer with Sasi's patience, dedication, and skill takes on the challenge, the results are astounding.
"Traveling for taking pictures of birds is my passion," Sompob told Bored Panda. "Actually, it is not easy to find these owls. Most of them, I found in the jungles but some I saw in the zoos. I've spent many years taking and collecting these owl photos"
"To be serious and patient are important qualifications of a bird photographer. Sometimes, I wait for a long time to get the right, beautiful and interesting posture"
