Andy came in 2018 and spent 2 nights in our 'Scaffold Hide' up at our local barn owls. The shot Andy chose to put forward perhaps wouldn’t have been our own first choice maybe going for a tighter image. Andy’s experience payed off here though choosing this image and converting to B&W has created something quite special - a fantastic composition along with excellent poses from the owls.
