Very nicely timed shot of the owl about to land, Lillian, the action well frozen.
And I'd have a bit of a job regaining a more standard posture after attempting that in V 2 and 3, I know after lying down to take orchids in the field........not a pretty sight.

Whilst image one is the clear favourite and rightly so, I rather like the two accompanying images, as for getting down and dirty for the low point of views, not quite sure if I would get back up again GrinGrinGrin

A terrific shot of this magnificent bird coming in to land, you've timed this one to perfection. I'm surprised Tomcat did not bring one of his groundsheets from Next along so that he did not get wet when lying on the ground!WinkGrinTongue
