Barn Owl - MarcoPesaresi

Barn Owls are stunning birds, i watched this beautiful owl for some time quartering a field hunting for voles, eventually after some time it came within range of my lens and I wasted no time in getting some shots of this bird as it flew past, its hard not to be overwhelmed when watching a barn owl hunt and even more so when they fly straight over your head yet make no sound whatsoever.

The wings of this bird are specially adapted to allow noiseless flight, this in turn helps them to  listen for prey and also reduces their chances of being heard by the prey as they approach.
