This bird just doesn't let me sleep in the night. I hate the kind of irritating sound they make. So one night I took my camera and shot him.

quite a scary one, i too had an Owl sitting in front of my window for some nights a few years ago...but then i didn't had a camera to shoot it. Nevertheless I quite enjoyed the sight and good thing was - it never made any sounds.
