Short-eared owl

Short-eared owl at Eldernell today, whilst topping rushes this shortie like others fly at the last second and usually land nearby. They are reluctant to fly far so as not to attract the attention of crows and kestrels who love to mob them. This beauty was digi-scoped less than 10 metres away- hence I could not fit it all in.

this shot was taken through binoculars (Leica 10x40). Using a Nikon coolpix 4500.

Hi Jonathan

Great images of SEO. What camera are you using? I'd like to take images like this through my leicas.
