An eagle owl (Bubo bubo) with an injured eye looks into the photographer’s camera lens at the Stadtwaldhaus animal sanctuary in Frankfurt/Main, Germany. The bird was found near Autobahn A3 after an accident that left his eye swollen and injured. The bird is expected to be released back in to its natural habitat after its recovery.
