National Geographic Your Shot member Karthik Vilwanathan waited 20 minutes to capture this great photo of an owl popping its head out of the hollow of this tree at Andy Howeys Birds of Prey Centre in Northumberland, UK.

Along with being a delightful photo, it also demonstrates a wonderful variety of mandalas: the eyes, the pupils of its eyes, the nostrils, the head, holes in the bark, the light spots in its feathers, and the tree hollow. This photo provides yet another example of the abundance of mandalas to be found in nature. 

Next time your out and about in the “wild”, take an extra look around. How many mandalas can you spot?

Happy Coloring!
