A Shot in the Dark
Sitting in the darkness, the trees rustled, a lone dog barked in the distance and he glided in silently, skimming through the trees. Pure magic!
Getting to the hide at half-past four in the afternoon and calling it at midnight I appeared to be slightly unlucky with only one very fleeting visit from this beautiful Tawny Owl. Having said that the excitement and tension was amazing being ever hopeful and expectant, listening to them hooting in the woods in the black of the night. A little spooky too.
It was also drizzling; with just a few shots in camera I have used a little artistic licence here.
There is nothing for it but to go down again and try my luck a second time soon.
