I uploaded a shot like this one last year, it was a real toss-up at the time between the two as to which I posted and in the end I went for the other as it had more space to the sides of the image at the wing tips.

However as I have nothing new to post at the moment I thought I would give this an airing tonight.

The super Kaln from the Barn Owl Centre.

Many thanks to everybody for the response to yesterdays Nuthatch, and especially to Mike for his UA.

We are off to London on Sunday to take in the Wildlife Photographer of the year exhibition at the Natural History Museum, my usual yearly dose of photographic inspiration.

Stunner! Can see what you mean about the wind tips but I do like a tighter crop than some so it suits me very well! Louise

Heading straight down the barrel of your lens by the look of things, Phil. Marvellous in flight shot, capturing that intense gaze at the same time, and many congrats to you on the HC and GEA awards.
Ronnie.
