Tonight I was on a mission......to get a Little Owl image in the late setting sun that would have a hint of a "golden glow" about it. I went to Flash Farm, Narborough, a location just down the road from where I live. At this site there is horizontal limb that the birds here seem quite fond of, but upon arrival it was in complete shade, dohhhhh! When the owls finally showed it was just before 9pm, but by then the sun had moved round sufficiently for the favoured limb to be in reasonable light but it was fading, and fast! Then right on cue and just after 9.00pm an owl dropped into position with a beetle in its beak, I rattled of a few shots. The image below was the best of the lot and I am really pleased with it, and as far as I am concerned............mission accomplished!
