Very nicely timed shot of the owl about to land, Lillian, the action well frozen.
And I'd have a bit of a job regaining a more standard posture after attempting that in V 2 and 3, I know after lying down to take orchids in the field........not a pretty sight.

Whilst image one is the clear favourite and rightly so, I rather like the two accompanying images, as for getting down and dirty for the low point of views, not quite sure if I would get back up again GrinGrinGrin
