Short Eared Owl - Feb 2015
We waited for nearly 5 hours in freezing conditions for this stunning Short eared owl to make an appearance . With strong, bitter winds, its movements were especially fast and erratic, giving me plenty of practise tracking and attempting to lock onto this incredibly beautiful hunter. Using a 400mm, hand-held lens I wanted to capture the owl in its natural environment, although it did like rising above the rough grass, into the sky. A wonderful afternoon spent sharing a space with this owl.
