It was a dull November afternoon and I'd had no success trying to photograph birds feeding in our back garden. There was just not enough light entering my long lens to get a decent image even with the tripod. Then I remembered the old owl who is often perched on the chimney top of a cottage in the local woods. He sits perfectly motionless, only occasionally opening one eye or moving his head slightly to remind you that he is indeed alive and not a stuffed specimen. This is a crop of a larger image taken with 1.6 second exposure - not the kind of exposure you'd expect to be able to use for wildlife photography!
