A capture of the Short Eared Owl just as the last light was failing.I had spent the last couple of hours observing this particular Owl perch on the fence posts.But as I was about to make a move another vehicle disturbed it.So I waited until the track was clear and this is one of the results.Thanks for all comments and votes on previous uploads.
