Photograph of this beautiful female Barn Owl, banking while she was hunting over grassland,taken in Norfolk yesturday as the sun was setting on the left of the bird.I was so well hidden that only my shutter noise gave my position away, and in return I was able to see up close how these's owl's hunt,fly,behave on the wing,breathtaking to watch.Thanks for looking, and votes on my heron
