Had a wonderful oportunity to photograph these barn owl chicks today at Kooyong Farm, Mullewa, WA … they’re so cute and made such funny noises :)
They were in an old field bin and the only way to ‘shoot’ them was to poke the lens through one of 3 rusty holes in the bottom of the bin while standing on the back of the ute :)

    Ohhh this is gorgeous! It looks as if you told them to “squeeze in a bit” to get them all in the frame haha! Where were they?

  • :) they’re in an old field bin on a friends farm about 40km away. The only way to shoot them was to poke the lens through one of 3 rust holes in the bottom of the bin while standing on the back of the ute :)
    Lots of fun :)
