Barn Owl with Wren


Photo Information
I finally managed to get a shot of a Barn Owl in decent light. I like this one because you can see the shadow of the Wren it is carrying on the Barn Owls wing

Superb image!

A combination of being in the right place at the right time, also known as field-craft & very, very accomplished technique.....

Superb!

Fabulous shot. Interesting asymmetry of the wing positions - was it about to turn?

Brilliant picture. I think I personally would favour a Portrait crop but I cannot quantify why.

Great stuff

Sometimes I'm serious and sometimes not, but I consider sarcasm an artform. Which is it today?
