I live in a typical Charnetaise house –
Can you see those two little arch-shaped holes/windows up on the top left? Well, there’s been such a lot of hissing coming from there in recent nights, and a bit of research revealed that the noise is the sound of barn owl chicks (barn owls don’t hoot, they hiss!)
Today I thought I could just make them out when I stood under the mulberry tree, and with a lot of patience, a camera on full zoom maxed up to a 3200 ISO setting, I managed to get these photos –
I mean – wow!
OK, not exactly nature photographer of the year material but WOW!
This is just the kind of thing which makes an ordinary day an extraordinary day!
