Southern Boobook (Image ID 38863)

The contrast in the image between the sharp definition of the adult bird in the foreground and the younger bird in soft focus behind helps to reinforce the contrast between the adult’s mature intensity of focus and the youngster’s somewhat surprised and bewildered take on the situation.
