Whooooo are you?

Jon Hamlin, a masters degree student at SFU Surrey, was leaving class Tuesday night when he realized he was being watched from above.

"Students, anxious to get home, were whizzing past and nobody seemed to even notice this beautiful creature looking down. I stopped to take some pictures and the owl didn't even seem to flinch," Hamlin told The Leader.

"It was a remarkable few moments I spent in its presence."
