The big version MUST be seen! Perfect timing and a very unusual posture makes this very unique.

Really love this. Would love to see one flying around in the wild, would be pleased as punch to capture it on camera and over the moon to get something as cracking as this.

Love how the light appears to illuminate the wing and tail edges, how fortunate he should turn to look at the lens, Superb shot

One of the best SEO shots I have seen John!! That focussed look is priceless, did the Owl catch the vole?

Brilliantly taken & very well exposed!

Vince

Also those recent Kite images posted in the snow are awesome

Excellent photograph. Such an unusual flight posture and you've got the bird's head and eyes tack sharp. Colours are great and nice shallow depth of focus. A ripper. Kind regards, Neil
