The image was captured on the Cisadane River in Bogor, Indonesia, by photographer Ajar Setiadi, 54. 

He said: “Sometimes nature will surprise you.

As he started to gain momentum, droplets of water were flying everywhere and his feathers became soaked.”

In other pictures the owl is seen mid-flight, talons at the ready as it dives for its dinner.
