Hi and welcome to my Blog, my name is Paul Riddle and I live in south Leicestershire, UK. Back in August 2008 my quest began to locate as many local Little Owl territories as possible. The driving force was a reported decline in the uk numbers so I thought I would do my bit and conduct a study in my area. After 5 years and countless hours out in the field I have detected over 200 different sites. With a thirst for a greater understanding of the owls a more comprehensive monitoring and nest box programme then commenced. This also now includes monitoring the local and very sparse population of Barn Owls, please pop back occasionally and catch up with the life and times of my owls and any other wildlife that I come across. I hope you enjoy your visit!!!

It's not cheating.......it's art.

Following on from my last two posts and keeping along with the theme of Barn Owl on a brick wall, here is another image of the very same bird on the said wall.
 
No there wasn't five Barn Owls all together, but a bit of picture stacking in photoshop enabled me to create the effect.


Now I am waiting for the critics to have their say, come on let me have it, I've got broad shoulders!

  2. Firstly it very clever, so well done. Also you declared what you've done and it's no different to taking a few images of a particular landscape and stitching them together to form a panoramic scene. I've seen it done with an Osprey hunting and was blown away and this no different so no critique from me.
