Large orange-brown owl with prominent “horns” and bright yellow eyes. Brighter-colored than other large horned owls in the region. Roosts in dense foliage, but at dusk and during the night it perches out on exposed waterside branches, riverbanks, and even jetties. Secretive by day, but can be common in areas with suitable habitat. Gives a variety of calls, including loud wailing screams and soft hollow hoots. Buffy Fish Owls are found from far east India, through southern Bangladesh south through peninsular Thailand and Malay Peninsula, Singapore, Sumatra, Java, Borneo, and neighboring island.

An avid and self-taught photographer who is an I.T engineer by profession but a photographer by passion. My passion and hobby in photography gradually make me a photographer and I like to spend my free time with my camera and photography. During my photography journey, I have understood that when someone understands about true aesthetics of art and takes control of creativity, could learn and deliver the beauty of photography where the subject wouldn't define your boundaries. This has helped me to win many prestigious photography awards in different categories internationally and locally.
