Great Shot Simon, I bet you have many more good images from your day at the Barn Owl Centre. I like your use of fill flash, it has helped to illuminate the interior of the barn. Similar shots of mine have a black background for the barn, the flash works well in this situation. I will remember that for my next visit. Smile
Good composition, nice and sharp.
cheers
Sean
