Barn Owl Flight (tyto alba)
Post hunting from a snowy border fence post on a early morning winters morning, in Norfolk UK. The weather can really influence the survivability of Barn Owls in the UK, long periods of snow and rain can drastically cut their numbers. The owl’s highly detailed knowledge of its own territory can mean the difference between death and survival. During a short break in severe weather, a Barn Owl that knows its area really well can fly directly to the optimum foraging habitat in any given ground, light and wind conditions. This increases its chances of success. Photographed early morning backlit, to reveal rim lighting around the owls body.

“Recently bought as an A1 print, and it’s fantastic. Apart from the image itself which is fantastic and now hanging in my living room, the quality of the paper and print itself are exceptional. Really good buying experience, quick, with great communication. First class stuff!”Jonathon Taylor
