Owls are fascinating creatures that have captured the imagination of people for centuries. Known for their wisdom and all-knowing gaze, these birds of prey are a popular subject in art, literature, and culture.
‘Owls Know Everything’ by Sham Jolimie is a stunning series of owl portraits that showcases the beauty and charisma of these magnificent birds.
Shot at various locations in Malaysia, the series features owls in all their different facets. From soft and fluffy to fierce and lethal, the portraits capture the essence of these wild nocturnal animals.
The deep soulful gaze of the owls seems to radiate intelligence, reinforcing their reputation as wise and all-knowing creatures.
While owls may be cute and captivating, they are not meant to be pets. Owls are wild animals with predatory nature, and keeping them in captivity is not only illegal in many countries but also cruel.
Some sanctuaries house rescued owls that are not able to return to the wild, and these birds may be put on display for educational purposes. However, this is not a justification for keeping owls as pets.
Certain wild animal conservation programs protect populations of endangered owls, but these efforts are focused on preserving their natural habitat and preventing their extinction.
Owls are an essential part of the ecosystem, and their presence is crucial for maintaining the balance of nature.

In conclusion, ‘Owls Know Everything’ by Sham Jolimie is a beautiful series of owl portraits that celebrates the beauty and charisma of these magnificent birds.
While owls may be captivating, they are wild animals that should be respected and protected. As we continue to appreciate the beauty of these creatures, let us also work towards preserving their natural habitat and ensuring their survival for generations to come.
