what a wonderful capture. Makes me quite home sick! When living in Cumbria we were lucky enough to see Barn owls in the wild, as not all the old barns had been converted into holiday homes!! However, although taken at the Barn Owl Centre this photograph has a wonderful feel of actually been in the wild. Do not have these wonderful birds in NZ. You indeed have a very good eye for this type of photograph, not my field of expertise, but have thoroghly enjoyed viewing this shot and thank you so much for sharing it.
