A gorgeous photo of a miniature owl taking refuge from a downpour has been shared far and wide on the Internet.

Talented photographer Tanja Brandt explained how she came to take the stunning pictures of the beautiful bird.

"Poldi, our little owl is 1.5 years old.

"I got him when he was five months old. He didn't want to come out of his egg and he was very small, the smallest.

"His six sisters were all hatched, and as he was the last to be born, days after the other," she told

The award-winning photographer said that she is also the proud owner of a hawk named Phoenix and a snow owl called Uschi.

"My animals like to be photographed.

"So we get to walk together, have fun, go on adventures, have little breaks.

"We take some pictures and after the animals can play again as we keep going.

"I know my animals very well and I can see their state of mind. If I go out with just one of my animals, the other get antsy and want to be with us. We have lot of fun together," she said.

We are loving your work Tanja.
