Moorland Surprises

August 8, 2020 at 7:26 pm

During this shortened breeding season I have spent many hours in the hills, mainly waiting for Long Eared Owls to perform. In wildlife photography there are lots of surprise encounters while you are out in the wilds – all unplanned. This weeks Gallery is devoted to just such encounters. It includes a Skylark resting o a dry-stone wall showing us the length of its hind claw. A male Partridge escorts his female on an early morning feeding trip. A Curlew guarding its young with a Snipe on a dry-stone wall nearby. The piercing stare of a Little Owl and a stunning Fragrant Orchid are also included. Click here
