Thursday afternoon found me in a different location nearer home where I was very pleased to see the barn owls hunting in the late afternoon. They seem to come out around 4pm and despite the strong winds they were actively hunting the rough grasslands close to their home in the farm buildings. I was well hidden behind a hedge and in camouflage and on three occasions the barn owls came close and gave me some great opportunities for close up shots.
Shown above are my best efforts from the brief encounter with the owls. It became very unpleasant waiting for the owls to come close and after an hour I had had enough and returned to the comforts of home. I was however well pleased with the results and hope you enjoy the images of my face to face encounter with these lovely birds. Weather permitting I hope to return soon for more close encounters. Thanks for looking in and enjoy your weekend.
