A compostition of two of my photos.
The Barn Owl hunts for prey in the late evening by the light of the moon.
Barn Owls are moderately common, but generally hard to see, as they are mostly active at night. During the day, the birds roost on concealed tree branches. They are the most widespread and familiar of the owls. They are generally quiet, the common call being a 12 second rough, hissing screech.
Canon 50D, EF70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM

Many thanks for checking out my photos, please feel free to give feedback! My wanderings in nature and observations of birds, particularly raptors, is what gives me great joy and constantly reminds me of the beauty and strength of life. My favourites are raptors, I love their freedom, grace, ruthlessness, pride, adaptability and flexibility and I learn much about parenting, protection and blind faith from them.
