One of the lovely boyf's stipulations, when presenting me with my Christmas present, was to use it to get a good photograph of the Barn owl that we are occasionally lucky enough to see in the back field as we walk the dogs. Yesterday afternoon I was planning to take my camera on our walk but it was bitterly cold and sleeting and didn't really seem like the best plan. The snow is (slowly) going and I couldn't imagine there would really be anything photo and bone-chilled fingers worthy. Famous last thoughts and all that; not only do we have a Barn owl, we have two. Two, very unfussed by the crazy lady and her dogs, owls who, for a delightful 20 minutes, showed me exactly why we are so keen on getting a good photo of them They were positively showing off, swooping, hunting, posing and preening and all well within range of the D90's lens.
Unfortunately, not so the camera phone's, but I tried... so here you are hon, one owl pic. I've given you a little hint, I'm sure you'll agree, it's obvious when you know where to look!
