Barn owl with vole (1/7)

Barn owl with vole (1/7)

A Barn owl that has just dove onto prey buried deep under the snow. The following sequence of photos shows the owl coming back to the surface with its well deserved meal. I was surprised to see these wings on top of the snow surface on the side of the road, ..., moved the vehicle back a bit to give the owl some space and shot the sequence with a 420 mm focal length lens.
