I trav­elled to a farm in Bed­ford­shire to spend the day in a hide pho­tograph­ing lit­tle owls that were nest­ing in a dis­used build­ing. The birds oc­ca­sion­ally popped out to sit on a bro­ken win­dow frame be­fore fly­ing away to hunt. This in­di­vid­ual of­ten used a gate post as a look­out spot, and as I had taken lots of por­traits, I wanted to cap­ture some flight shots. This ac­tion was cap­tured us­ing a fast shut­ter speed. I love the owl’s out­stretched wings and lifted talons as it comes in to land on its favoured perch. Andy Edge, Es­sex, UK
