The dawn hunter

By tomcat    
A Barn Owl Tyto alba, taken back in early March, at Chez Chase
Thought I would save this one JanetTongue, until I needed something to rid me of this damn awful weather depressionSad

Can we please have some decent weatherSmile

Butterfly togging in these parts, has become a no no since last ThursdaySad
If it ain't raining, then there is a blustery South-westerly blowing.

Apologies for not keeping up with things, but our Dan's prom, plus work and other ongoing issues, have kept me away from the 'puter.

For once, I ain't blaming BTWink

That bg works very well Adrian,it gives a sense of the surroundings.
Lovely drop of light.
They are still around,daring to come right into the garden most days...I do keep my distance & just watch,fascinated by their antics.

Great capture Adrian. I share your thoughts about this 'cotton picking' lousy weather. Had just about enoughof it. !! Bit rushed for time at the moment but I will be back for a natter asap.
Be lucky

I've been waiting for a break in this damn weather in order to get a Mothing trip organised.....But this rain is just never ending, I'm waiting for Noah's Ark to go sailing by any day now it's that bleedin' bad!

Always nice to keep a few images back for a "rainy day/month/year" Adrian........This one's a belter mate!
