Blackie and Barn

As she came towards me with her wings spread the sun shone threw her feathers. Head and eyes looking into the pale brown grass. Ears listening for the slightest movement.

Barn Owl Hunting.

Turning quickly diving fast and seconds before she strikes her wings tuck back her Talons pushed forward and her eyes closed for the kill. She missed bless her.

Does she get it.

The skill she uses has to be seen to understand how clever she is and the speed of her when she pinpoints the movement of a rodent.

Beauty in Flight.

Moments spent filming the Barn Owl are so special and its a privilege to capture her in the wild hunting. I do hope she has a mate and they breed this year.
