Little Owl Sunset

I've been following a Little Owl for a few years, and during one of my last visits, there were 2 older chicks - one of them was standing on top of a big rock. The sun was about to set, and I waited patiently in hope that the little guy will stay on that rock. Just as the sun was behind him, craws flew by and scared him, and I missed the shot. Minutes later, he stood up again, with the soft orange sky behind him. To make it up to me for missing the shot earlier, he turned around and looked at me.
