I have recently returned from a shoot in N Norway, up near the Arctic Ocean, and while driving along a road (there aren't many of them) we saw this Hawk Owl sitting in a tree top. We lured it in with a dead vole, a game it seemed to gain a fondness for!. This is one of the series of shots I took as the bird came in to grab its vole. I have just put them on the first background for a bit of fun. Hope that you like it.
