This was one of the prettiest female Barn Owls I have seen in a long time and against the unlit hedge, slots quite nicely into my "out of the dark" theme.

Natural light Phil. Viewed very, very large, you can see a view of the horizon and tree line behind me. It seems a little brighter here and also the spots down her flank are a little darker than the original, as if it has gained a little contrast during the upload.

Wow now there's a capture, loving the action of the Barn Owl with his Talons stretched right out.
A superb shot well caught.

By the way How do you know it is a female?, everyone I speak to says they cannot tell the difference as it is extremely hard to do so.
