Owl always loves you. Some stunning images have been captured of a tender moment between a pair of barn owls.
A pair of affectionate sisters were snuggling together in a tree.
Leslie Arnott, aged 55, captured the moment during a Country Events and Falconry partnership where he teaches people how to photograph static and flying birds of prey.
‘The owls are trained but they fly free in the woodland for customers to photograph them.’ Leslie said.
Mr. Arnott said he had never seen anything like it when he spotted the couple kissing each other as they put their arms around each other.
The couple flew for a while before sharing their special moment in the dark woodland.
Even though they were trained and had been together for a while, I was so excited when they all landed on their branch and started little intimacy with each other.
They were holding each other, rubbing heads, and getting quite affectionate. It looked as if they were going to kiss each other.
It wasn’t intentional, but it was beautiful to see. Even though I tried to get them to repeat the moment for others, they never did.
‘They certainly looked like they tried to kiss, but I guess we will never know for sure.’
Although not a breeding pair, these owls are actually sisters, work very well together, and are always close by to each other.’
