Andy tells us
"Firstly, id like to say big thank you to all the judges and congratulations to all the finalist and fellow winners.
It’s a great honour to receive a third place for my Short-eared owl photograph (Going in) in this the inaugural Bird Photographer of the year competition run by Photographic Societies in conjunction with the RSPB
2018 has been a good year for me with the societies (SNIWP) earlier on I was very proud to receive Fellowship honours and in March won the monthly gold medal.
Photography related business. I’d spent quite a few hours travel from home to this site at various times during the shorted-owl season here in the southern end if the country, on this particular bright very cold late February morning, every thing as they say “dropped into place”
Taken with: Canon EOS 1DX MKII Canon @ 600mm f.4 MKII: f6.3 1/2500 ISO 1600"
