Today's #ThrowbackThursday takes us to a deserted quarry near the town of Kiryat Gat in Israel, which becomes a bird metropolis in spring. This is where #WPYalumni Ilia Shalamaev stationed his hide, and among the residents was a pair of little owls and their chicks. 'I noticed that the owls liked to perch on one particularly big rock,' he says. He dragged an even higher branch to the same spot, offering them a better vantage point in return for a sandy backdrop. The plan worked. Ilia then photographed the owls' domestic life to his heart's content, including tender moments such as this interaction between the three youngsters.
