It looks as if winter 2015/16 is going to be a bumper year for Short-eared owls in the UK.
Sightings are being reported in almost every county , with some in areas where they haven't been recorded for several years.
Short-eared owls are diurnal , they hunt during daylight. Barn owls are semi nocturnal , they hunt mainly at night but also at dawn and dusk. During the summer breeding season when they have young to feed you will sometimes see them hunting in the middle of the day.
The other owl species that we have in the UK , Tawny , Long-eared , and Little , are nocturnal hunters but you can sometimes find them resting in trees during the day.
Love it! You caught yourself a determined look, there. I think it sees you!
My gear isn't the best either. My f5.6 zoom doesn't have the focusing speed of a f2.8 or even f4 prime lens. Patience is the only thing I have on my side :-)
Down it goes.
I know it's just the natural appearance, but he looks like he's on a mission.
Brilliant series of three ~ well caught to both of you ~ commiserations to the fish :~)
Very very beautifull! LIKE, Ian.
