Here are a couple of static shots of Basil, a burrowing owl, taken during a photographic day at the Raptor Foundation in Cambridgeshire. Unfortunately, Basil was not in the mood to put on a flying display, however many of the other raptors did oblige and will be featured in future posts. I am particularly pleased with the nice bokeh here predominantly provided by the vibrant rapeseed field in the background.
