Owls are adapted perfectly to night life. The numerous light-sensitive
cells in the retina of their eye allow them to see in the dark. Unlike
most birds, their eyes are positioned on the front – rather than the
side – of the head, which helps them to assess distances and to be
successful at hunting. Their inability to move their eyes in the sockets
is compensated by their ability to rotate their head round 270 degrees.
Owls also have excellent hearing, helped by their facial feathers,
which direct sound into their ears. They fly silently, aided by their
soft plumage and the serrated edges of the flight feathers, which smooth
the flow of air during flight. Being able to fly silently is very
helpful to owls when hunting, as they can surprise their prey. Most owls
hunt small rodents, amphibians and reptiles; smaller species of owl
also hunt insects on the ground; the large Eagle Owl (Bubo bubo) can
capture hedgehogs, rabbits and even young deer.
Ivan Esenko presents the world of nature and invites the reader to learn more about the world that we are part of. His camera is his most faithful companion and its lens particularly likes to ‘capture’ those animals that live in close quarters to man. We take them so much for granted that we no longer seem to care for them. Ivan is their voice, he has become their ‘personal’ photographer.
