    On my recent trip up to Scotland, we visited Dunrobin Castle which is the home of the Countess of Sutherland it's a fabulous house and gardens but a hell of a long way from - well anywhere really!!

    They have a selection of birds of prey that they fly for the public during the day, this is their barn owl called plop.

    Very very cool shots, Tempra! I like the flying posture you captured in the third shot, and the details in the feathers in the second shot, but basically really like all of them.

    Very nice! I've only ever seen a captive barn owl, but the people working with the one I saw said it was the most people friendly and affectionate of all their re-habilitated raptors -- I always found that fact to be fascinating.
