Again another beautiful Owl from The Hawk Conservancy in Hampshire
I think this one is called Tolkien...but there are some of you that will know for sure.....

Going to try again on Sunday, weather permitting!
V2 flying even lower!
Both hand held

Thank you for so many comments yesterday, much appreciated
especially as I missed a good day at Richmond Park and Wetlands Barns....

Off to take my cold out to the dentists todaySad ...always a pleasure trip, NOT!

Enjoy the day

Both beautifully caught shots of "Cinnamon" Lillian, but V1 is the best. Far more natural in the rough grass than against a manicured lawn.
