Hi all

Here's a shot, one of my personal favourites and just TOTAL luck in the timing of it! I thought the picture was unique as the glare in the owl's eyes directed at the snipe is very empowering. Also the snipe seems very scared here, and as the snipe is a very elusive bird, I was really lucky to manage this one Smile

Thanks
Jonah

Well captured.
