Really Chuffed!

By KarenFB
I couldn't wait to share this with you!! Smile

Taking a break from decorating, I decided to wander down to the pond. On the way back I heard a strange sound. Upon following it I spotted 3 Tawny Owl fledglings huddled up together on a branch!! Grin Of course, when they spotted me they all flew off in different directions - keeping my eye on one I managed to see where it landed and to my delight it was still there when I spotted it again.

I took this with my Canon S3, I would have liked to have used the SX240 (better zoom), but after 3 shots it decided to fly off.

Grin............It's lovely to have a 'Wow!' moment every now and then! Smile

Terrific capture, well done;
I'm very envious as home is "owl country" and never see them in daylight.
