Barn Owl.." tyto alba" The folowing Images up to the Snipe are from a few days I spent in Norfolk. Poor weather and an injury (diagnosed as a ruptured achilles tendon) cut short the trip.
Is there a better sight to see than a Barn Owl flying at dusk, weaving and turning as it hunts its prey. It makes your spine tingle as you watch and admire this beautiful "ghost hunter". To see it, count yourself very lucky,however to photograph it flying is something very special. The memory will live with you for a long time.
As a photographer something inside you wants to go back and try again, hoping, preying you get better light, however at the end of the day does it really matter !! no it doesn't, be thankful you got the chance to see this magnificent bird weaving its spell over you.
