Barn Owl

By nigelpye
Capturing a Barn Owl in its environment isn't an easy task but shot back lit in the setting sun, increases your odds at getting something good. I hope this shot shows that the Barn Owl doesn't always have to be big in the frame and that showing the bigger picture can work sometimes.
