of all the owls I think I like this one the best. The position of the wings relative to the bird in flight really comes across well.

Another fantastic shot.

Both brilliant images but for me, you can't beat a Barn Owl in flight. Version 1 for me it is then....a corker

Breathtaking images, I did capture a few barn owl shots myself at my local reserve the other night but I have to say they're not a patch on these, beautifully done!
