Shortie In Flight (plus Video footage)

I decided to have another look through some of my rejected photos of the Short Eared Owls I’ve recently been getting up early for. None of them will make my Flickr Album but even though this shot is both a bit boring (just a side on-shot) and quality isn’t great, I love the sunrise colours of the whole scene so thought I’d share.

Whilst waiting for the sun to come up I thought I’d shoot some film of one of the Owls flying as it was too dark for photos. However, there were a lot of Crows flying around and the Owl would not leave the tree in fear of being mobbed. As the video shows, he was keeping a keen eye on it’s surroundings.
