[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We ran another Liberty's Raptor and Reptile Centre photoday out in the New Forest today, and were lucky enough to get some decent weather for a change. With the good light and the autumn colours in the leaves, we decided to place Dudley the Barn Owl (Tyto alba) in one of the trees...

Hi Miles,
Now that's a beauty!
I can see that Dudley is a pro at posing.
A classic POV of this gorgeous owl.
Great eye contact and exposure.

Hello Miles
Dudley is a very good poser...you can see how good he is by the 1/25 shutter speed that you were able to capture him at!!
Great work and a fine natural looking picture..
Best Regards to you and Dudley

Very ice capture f this Barn Owl Miles.

Excellent detail and composition though.

Hi Miles
Perfect portrait of a beautiful barn owl,nice background from leaves good pose and sight of you.
Regards Jiri.

Hi Miles,
What a stunner. I love how the colored leaves make the entire photo so much more beautiful. For a photo taken in a center it looks like a total wild one. No hint what so ever of human interferance in the entire photo. Great work on the exposure, keeping all details in perfect condition.
TFS,
Niek
