This photo was taken the moment before a wild Komikami owl shivered in a tree and took off. It is difficult to photograph the owl in the best conditions because it does not show itself when it is windy, and because it is nocturnal, it is often in the dark. After many trips, I succeeded in capturing the moment the owl took flight during a relatively bright time of day.

I am a landscape and wildlife photographer with a wide range of genres in Japan. I usually work as a construction worker and enjoy using my camera. I work for various companies and NFT in a wide range of fields. I started participating in international photo contests outside of Japan in 2022!
