Description: Masai Mara is not just about big cats. This head bobbing smiley Marsh Owl gave me a feeling as if I was shooting a fashion model who kept trying out different head turns.

Story from behind the lens: We had wrapped up for a day and heading for the camp. That's when we saw this elusive marsh owl on the ground camouflaged between tall grass. As the day was about to end the owl seemed to be getting ready to be active and looking around for some prey. We decided to stay put and to our luck the owl flew out of the grass to sit on top of a nearby bush. Constantly head bobbing checking out its surrounding from a vantage point. A special moment in Mara.
