while on a recce, I came across 15 red kite. they were all perch on fence post….
There is a place about 5 miles from my home where there is a pair of barn owl. They have been there for years. The best way to photograph them is from the car. Early ..very early in the morning.
Three time the birds flew…From post to post….
I like the light on this one, lovely
The one that got away…Unfortunately the owl flew away from me. I can only think what would the picture had been if it had come towards me…
last Sunday,the weather was incredible…
I know a place where red kite come to feed on worm and drink. It is quite easy to photograph red kite on the wing . To photograph them perch on something or on the ground is a different matter . This Sunday I was lucky.
This was tolerated me for 10 second before flying off….
For the last Month , I have been trying to get picture of a local barn owl.
Out of 15 outing, I dipped 13 time. I could see the bird almost every time, but there was always something….
Three days ago, I did get quite close….They are still a big crop , but I like the colours….
Hopefully , I will have more chance to photograph this incredible bird.
