I'm sad to share that last night our sweet old man Phil passed away.
He was a ripe old age of 20 (at least), in his last days he was indoors in the warm being pampered and thoroughly loved.
He's been with us for as long as anyone can remember, we will all miss him so much.
Whilst he may have been grumpy he was also a real character that could put a smile on anyone's face.
Rest in peace sweet boy, it was a pleasure to work with you ❤️❤️

Don’t sweat the petty stuff….just pet the sweaty stuff…… So many people read this crap, it amazes me everyday that anyone pays a bit of notice to be honest. I know I wouldn’t but here you are? Makes me wonder less about what my glitch is but more what’s your problem? You might have issues. It’s ok we all do and I like people who are interesting. I guess I’ll keep you lot. Someone needs a niche to fill.
I can fill a niche.
Speaking of issues, this little #barnowl struggled to move about in it’s tiny tree nest, kinda cute for an ugly #baby#babyanimals tend to garner a considerable amount of attention. Who better than I to post such an attention getter? This guy didn’t sweat it, he dealt with it and adjusted.
I’ve been told I seem to crave attention,(not just you)(you’ll read it like that so its not just you((so many you’s)) heh. I don’t see it that way at all. I look to have fun with those who want to have fun. For sure if you aren’t capable of understanding context or how I initiate wordplay then you might be lost. I grant that but in general if you’re not too dull I might be entertaining. Thats my goal.
Yup its a lot of trials and tribulations being me or knowing me, however in general I’m good with myself. I don’t sweat small things or small people. Unless it’s funny hehe, then I’m going to sweat all over that shit.
SO here’s my pledge, I’m going to keep being exactly who I am regardless of whomever doesn’t like it, because being disingenuous isn’t me. There are plenty of positive paddlers puffing up and plying there pap to the peoples. Pfft. Phuck Pthat
I look forward to continued interaction with those of you who wish to continue, I look forward to keeping things worth being kept.
Barn Owl (Tyto alba). (Full brightness recommended)
They have such insanely beautiful eyes, like onyx polished to a glow. And I do not exaggerate. You could believe every story of owls being wise, looking into the black depths of their eyes.
Commonly found across the world in temperate and tropical regions, they're nocturnal hunters that are thought to mate for life. They have acute hearing and use it in their hunt for live prey. An interesting fact is that they swallow all parts of small prey, and regurgitate pellets of undigested fur, feather and bone.
They also happen to be extremely fluffy, with razor sharp talons and flat faces - and yes, they are urban wildlife found quite often in Bangalore. They're like pale spectres at night, and supposedly spotting one is good luck. They're also victims of certain black magic rituals - some include chopping their legs off, others require starving the birds for days.
The barn owl is one of the most widespread bird species in the world. They suffered drastic declines in Britain during the 50's and 60's due to pesticides like DDT. They are nocturnal and hunt primarily with sound. The feathers of the head form a heart-shaped disc that helps reflect sound to their ears and they have very sensitive hearing. Their eyes are also very sensitive to movement. Prey mainly consists of small rodents like field voles.

Oil glazes slowly adding depth to this fellow. At the moment my focus is really on keeping the feeling of motion and weightlessness of a bird in flight, as many of you may know Barn Owls hunt in almost total silence, so I'm trying hard to portray that softness of feather and wing that enable such flight. Once that's done I'm excited to get my tiny brushes out (they are banished to a cupboard to keep temptation at bay 😅) and dive into the details!
