In February 2016, I photographed a beautiful Barn Owl that was hunting for mice and vole in the snow. It was difficult to get some in flight pictures, because the Owl had been flying further than my camera was able to capture. After waiting a good while, it finally perched on an electrical box and stayed long enough for me to capture a few images.
This image was fairly well received and I know it would have been a winner without the electrical box being used as a perch. So, while it’s not a winner, it is a keeper because it documents the environment that Owl’s can often be found. I didn’t learn till late last year, that Mother Nature Network had featured it on their website, talking about Rat Poison and it’s affects on animals higher up in the food chain. That article can be read, here.
