Tawny Owl

To find an owl whilst out birding is always a reward, doubly so when you can get some photographs. Today, somewhere in East Sussex, we came across this most obliging Tawny Owl. Some purists may say that the bird is obscured and that I didn't get a clean shot, but this is how they are, masters of disguise, using the available cover to their advantage. Whilst photographing this one both Martin and I got the impression that it was tolerating us, but in those deep reflective eyes you could see the contempt for the two idiots below. As Martin said "A truly wise old Owl". We left the bird as we found it - contemplating the world from its leafy perch.
