I haven't been out and about with the camera since I took this shot of the Barn Owl, which was last week! as you all know the weathers been crap.

But what bugs me is I keep hearing about this drought we're having? funny that in the last ten days its rained every day. Oh I forgot its the wrong sort of rain, or is it the other excuse, the winters been so dry.
Nothing to do with the leaking pipes and reservoirs then.

Maybe I'll pay them in the wrong sort of cash for the water bill, which keeps going up every bloody year to top up their profit margin.

Pi**ed off with this weather...

TECH: 1/800 F 5.6 EV -1 ISO 320

Thanks for looking

Wow, this ones a stunner. Not only is the detail brilliant but the composition is very attractive, I love the space you have given the owl in the frame. The background is very complimentary too.

Good work!
