The grass owl (scientific name: Tyto longimembris) is a medium-sized owl, also known as the monkey-faced eagle, with a body length of 35 cm. It is a nocturnal bird of prey with a heart-shaped face. It lives in the grass and shrubs of the foothills and feeds on rodents and frogs. The cry was loud and piercing. During the day, the grass owl hides in the woods to recharge, but is very active at night.
The friendship of the grass owl
Grass owls are very alert, their nests are hidden in tall grass, and conventional handheld cameras are difficult to take no matter how concealed they are, especially photos of grass owl pups are more rare. These are the four grass owl brothers. The eldest brother can already eat alone, and the younger brother still needs to be fed by his mother.
This time, we used the U100 remote camera assistant to shoot images that are currently difficult to capture with handheld cameras - grass owl brooding.
Grass owls are ferocious. After catching a mouse, a small one devours the whole head. For a large mouse, it will first peck at its head and then tear its body. Even if it is full, it will not let go of the mouse. Generally speaking, if there are many rats in a certain area, the grass owls in the area will lay more eggs per nest, and vice versa, they will lay fewer eggs, which is very good at "family planning".
Due to the particularity of the location of the grass owl's nest, few people can be photographed, and the films produced are basically unique. Being able to take unique pictures is the dream of ecological photographers.
Now, this dream will be realized with the help of the animal blockbuster artifact - remote camera assistant!
It can make the camera closer to the animals without destroying the ecological environment and disturbing the animals, making it easier for photographers to wait, the shooting angle is more suitable, and the images captured are more unique.
The U100 remote camera assistant can satisfy ecological photographers with a 500-meter remote control camera and gimbal, and can get closer to wild animals.
