Little Owl, Lleida Plains, Catalonia

LITTLE OWLS MAKE LOVELY PORTRAIT SUBJECTS! A pair are nesting in the same pile of limestone rocks that I photographed them on three years ago on the Lleida Plains and whilst they are not uncommon it is sometimes tricky to capture them in the light you are looking for. Add to this their reluctance to perform when it is windy or raining. In this case the light was soft evening at the end of a very hot and sunny day. It was well worth the wait.
