Owls World

By ianrobinson    
Taken in winter months this Barn owl was hunting early in the afternoon.
After a month or so of watching him/her I decided on a place to be to get the best image with light coming through the wings, on the day it all came together, the light, the Barn owl, the position, and the distance were all spot on, after capturing many from this location I looked on the back of my small screen and just knew I had something special.
