Whispering sweet nothings

By simons
Taken at Old Warden Bird of Prey centre. I watched as the owl on the left moved closer and then looked as if it was whispering to the one on the right, probably saying something like "not another one of those photographers" or "quick show your best side".
Other suggestions welcome.

Very nice shot - a nice moment captured. One of my children rejoiced in telling everyone who would listen today this joke - What is the most common type of owl found in Britain?

A teatowel!!!
Was funny at first but got less so after hearing it several times

'You go and sit on his head, I'll grab his camera and get the shot - it has to be worth at least an "HC"' ?

Nicely captured Simon.

Reference the Joke Rob, should be the flattess Owl (teatowel)

Try this one.
There is an Owl with a 6ft wingspan flying away from bright direct sunlight, when he turns & flys back direct into the bright sun, why does he only have a 3ft wingspan?

For the answer you will need to follow the instructions below. Goog Luck lol

Put one arm to one side making it fully stretched like a wing, then flap like mad with it, cover your eyes with the other hand whilst you are doing this to block out what would be the strong sun.............. There you go lol you now have a 3ft wings span lol

Don't tell me you are flapping your wing blind folded... lol

Oh Oh... I think I need to get out a bit more lol
