Barn owl hunting1

Barn owl hunting1

It was difficult containing my excitement at seeing this male barn owl hovering over prey as I sat about 50 metres away crouched by a hedge, trying to maintain a steady hand and shutter button finger to capture this evocative moment. It lacks the beautiful lighting of many barn owl photographs taken in East Anglia, which seems to enjoy better light as a whole than Shropshire, but the action in this image more than made up for that, I hope.
