Short-eared Owl

Short-eared Owl

Cow Down, Berks, UK. 6 January 2008
EOS 350D & 400mmf5.6. 1/4000 sec f5.6 ISO 400

I have visited this site many times in search of SEO pics, and this is by far my best. It was a lucky shot taken shortly after my arrival that day. I believe other birders flushed this bird to so that it flew towards me. How I managed to get onto it and get focus lock I will never know! Almost certainly a unique, never to be repeated photo.
