The hunter
The hunter
Working with barn owls for a number of years, one of the many things I have learnt is how difficult it is to photograph them during daylight. The adults will often hunt before dusk or after sunrise during the summer when they have young to feed, or if the weather has been difficult during the night (wind or rain).

This image used a wide angle lens to photograph the bird in its environment, as it hunts the fringes of the cropped fields.
