Barn owl on dead Ash tree

As I looked to the dead Ash by the river Hull, a Barn Owl white silhouette emerged from the tree. By the time I got my camera ready it had flown up, almost floating away over the fields. Pencil on Wacom tablet.

I treasure my encounters with Barn Owls. I used to dissect their pellets to find out what they ate, but watching them was unusual. Lately, I have enjoyed some recent close encounters with these birds in Tophill Low. A pencil and watercolour sketch.
