Award Shortlist   

Short Eared Owl

By Karen_Summers  
A completely different look to this one, an almost ghostly feel to it, someone called it a feathered angel, I love the difference in the tones when the sun dissappears and gives the cool looking light which is becoming a favourite of mine. Once again I am so chuffed to get another award on the previous one, thanks Pete, and for the comment, and thanks to those who private messaged me.

A stunning image of the silent hunter Karen, you could have entitled this one "The angel of death". This sight of this bird will strike fear into the hearts of any poor little mice and voles!
