Wild Barn Owl

By Ade_Osman    
Another shot on a recently posted Wild Barn Owl that I've been photographing over the last few months at a local nature reserve near to where I live.
Took this shot while I camouflaged right up and sat more or less underneath the nesting box that had been placed on the reserve a few years previously by the Hawk and Owl Trust, this shot was taken just as the owl left the box to go on a hunt.........Shot is as I took it with nothing added or taken away!
Hope you enjoy......Ade
