After several days of terrible dust storms, the skies cleared yesterday and one could see the stars at last. I spent the night with my friend Thomas who obtained a permit from NPA to photograph Hume's Owls in the Judean Desert. I was very focused on assisting him to get the best possible results, which was pretty tough after he smashed his flash, hand and knee when he crashed down walking in the wadi, but like a good soldier he wiped the blood off and continued walking. My images aren't as good as his but the experience was breathtaking - we had a lovely pair dueting to each other at a very short distance from each other.
