I read a really bad review on the Barn Owl Centre.........the owner blamed the visitors for the problems and he himself was rather rude to the people...........SadSad

Fabulous capture, excellent isolation of the owl - beautiful result!

A beautiful image of the owl in the grass - in many ways more appealing than on tree stumps.
P.S. Was thinking about Trevor yesterday - great to know he made it to the wedding.
hope operation is soon and successful.

I'm glad you decided to lead with Willow in v1, he's so photogenic. I think i recognise that ruffian in v2, it is none other than my Uncle Adie aka the "Tomcat" or "lagerboy", it makes a change to see him without his Crocodile Dundee hat, did he leave it at home? It looks like a good time was had by all, very pleasing to hear the news regarding Trev, I look forward to more installments from your Birds of Prey day.

Tremendous shallow focus lifting the Owl out of the background nicely.

The boys do like their toys.
