From a session at the Barn Owl Centre last year.

Off to London later to go to the Athletics Diamond League meeting at Crystal Palace so an early upload today.

Many thanks to all for the comments on the Banded Demoiselle upload, and to ValSaxby and Pete for the GEA and HC awards.

Thanks for looking.

Great composition. The colour scheme makes it for me. The complimentary shades of brown with a tinge of blue at the top and green at the bottom. I'm not a big fan of 'straight' bird shots but this caught my eye.

It is a well composed image with all those verticals, but in addition of course a superb shot of the owl.
