Great find, Paul, and nice of the owl to open its eye. It's amazing how well camouflaged they are.

What a character, Paul. Beautifully caught with one beady eye open to keep a check on what's going on under its cosy tree cavity. This really shows just how well they are camouflaged in their chosen habitat. A fine image with just that touch of humour that I really like.
