    A disagreement between owls

    The weather was a bit changeable today so I didn't get out with the camera until about 6.30pm or so. I was setting up at one of my usual places when a short eared owl came quartering across the fields. Then suddenly another short eared owl popped up and they started a quick mid air tussle. I only managed to get a few shots of the end part of the confrontation and the light wasn't great, but I thought you might like to see the results.

    Great pics, thanks for sharing them
    Why do they call it "Taking a dump" when you're actually leaving one?
