Barn owl

I was visiting friends in Walkington near Beverley this weekend when they told me of a barn owl nearby.  Being wide awake at 4am, I thought I might as well get up and check it out.  As I approached the area, I found my quarry sitting on a post.  He flew off as I approached in the car but later in the morning I found him again in the same place.  With the sun directly behind me, he wasn’t so concerned and I managed to get this shot without getting too close.
