Great Grey on a great grey day

By MartinjD
Cheepy is a female Great Grey Owl who lives at the Mid Wales Falconry Centre. She was a real star for us yesterday - many thanks to Barry Powell for the trip.

Here she is flying across the marshy ground.

Great to meet a number of new members

F8, 1/500, ISO400, lens at 190mm
