Can you spot the own perfectly camouflaged into the tree?

If it wasn’t for the Indian Scoops owl’s eyes and feet, then it would be quite easy to miss it.

Sanjiv Kapadia, 57, captured this impressive image of the owl who can barely be seen sitting in the tree trunk.

The image was captured in Nagzira wildlife sanctuary, India.

Sanjiv who is a soft skills trainer said: “After few km of driving, the safari jeep driver and the guide took us near the tree.

“They tried to show me this bird but it took at least three minutes to spot it.

“It was so very well camouflaged that I was not able to see.

“I tried to take a picture but the lighting was very low.

“A few hours later at 9.30 am, I returned and I was able to capture this incredible image.

“The tree was its home.”
