V1 is a beauty Lillian, the poor bird in V2 and 3 must have been wondering what all that wildlife was up toTongueTongueSmile

A great day which I really enjoyed and had quite a few keepers too.

Let me know the date and venue of the next one when you can and hopefully I will be able to make that one too.

V1 is one of the most beautiful owl photo I've seen in awhile, although I was disappointed to see the crowds around this trained bird in the following versions. I felt very sorry for it, in such an unnatural environment.
