Spotted Eagle Owl by ludwigsdiana

Spotted Eagle Owl

hiding in the tree. This is the partner of the one that I previously posted.

What a pleasure it was to get up this morning and have power again. It took all of 15 hours for the damaged cable to be replaced. The thieves went to the same spot where the cable was replaced the night before. To their dismay, they realised that it had been replaced with aluminium which is useless to them, so they set it alight. We now have an armed guard there at night until a camera can be put up and watched by our security team. Here's hoping the nightmare is over ;-)

Wow.Such a gorgeous closeup.

I cannot imagine living with that kind of uncertainty in my life! It makes one feel so violated and impotent to do anything to prevent it! I am glad it was fixed more quickly than the last time.

Fabulous!

@domenicododaro The cables belong to the state. Unfortunately they are on the main road right in front of our security complex. As we live in a rural area, there is no traffic that time of night. Our estate is having a cv camera installed which will be monitored 24/7. That just means they will go elsewhere and do the same. Too many desperate and hungry people in this country.

@jgpittenger Shame Jane, I woke him out of a deep sleep. He kept watching with one eye :-)

Fav! Wonderful pic! So sharp!
Maybe when you're born in those (certainly beautiful but troublesome at the same time) surroundings that you can cope with them...?

@stimuloog Thanks Marloes, it is getting more difficult by the day, especially as covid is slowly starting to peak. ;-)
