Barn Owls

I am sure all who read this blog will know that I have a big love for Barn Owls, last week I spent several days working on them at a regular haunt.
There's no substitute for spending time just watching them and getting to know their favoured hunting spots, perches and habits, once you know the birds daily routine the photography is easy; you can be in the right place for the light at the right time of day and wait for the bird to come to you.
So, after 4 days of getting to know my birds daily routine I waited by one of the favoured perching places and got some great portraits in the morning, then spent the afternoon at its favourite hunting meadow shooting flight shots, a very nice day!
