Good morning everyone,

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments and support on my Birds of Prey series, and a special thanks to John for his precious user award for The Kestrel.

Today a small selection of images of the beautiful Barn Owl I photographed flying in field of buttercups, v3 is a cheeky image of an owl wearing buttercups for eyelashes (it's the fashion this year you know)!

I hope you have a good day planned, we saw two incredible bands last night so I have dozens of images to shift through today and hope to have a selection to share with you over the next week.

Best wishes
Heather

It is so utterly unfair that someone should be so horribly good at two completely different genres...

Another amazingly wonderful set of pictures.

Wonderful images Heather, fantastic detail, V3 is standout, brilliant and you clearly have a tough old life photography by day and out clubbing at night, its a hard old station but clearly someone has to do it GrinGrinGrin
