Thank you very much my friend!

I catch this beauty quite close to my home where I live in Sweden, Linköping. Every year or every 2nd year they come and visit us early spring and stay for a while depending on rodent population around the lake (Lake Roxen). They are not so common, last two years for example not so many people could get a chance to see or photograph them in the same area. (I encountered once. Have some shots but not BIF.)

I never use a hide because I don't like to be nailed/caged on a point somewhere in field. I need to be able to move, especially when I take BIF shots. So I don't use a tripod either such times. I have various camouflage clothes like ghillie suits etc. (Nowadays I use those microlight 3D leaf camouflage suits [Realtree Max camo products], gloves, head mask etc. and I found much much more comfortable than a ghillie.)

Cheers!
Thank you very much too my friend for your "behind the photo" details, really appreciated! I'm seeing a lot of top class photos in PFs but yours are surely a nice advertishment for Pentax gear and inspiration for Pentaxians to try and reach that level of photgraphic perfection.
I'm really impressed by this image, and since I love owls I wish I could come up with an owl in flight picture at some point! It is very difficult though because I've never seen one out in open fields here in South. Usually I'm photographing small Athene noctua owls on roof tops

Many greetings and I'll keeping an eye for your future posts of wildlife photos in here!

HUGE THANKS my friend!

"Athene noctua" is one of the most lovely birds for me! I really missed to see them during warm summer nights on the roofs down there! Also calls of Otus scops...

Warmest greetings to lovely Grece! BEST!
