A few days ago I and this Barn Owl (Tyto alba) had a funny encounter. While I was checking out an abandoned bird watching tower in the middle of the forest this beautiful fella flew out underneath it just before I wanted to take a look. One of its wings flapped against my cheek. I carefully watched him flying away and found him again in the top of a tree checking me out. That is when I took this picture and we said goodbye to each other.

You usually see these guys blitzing about at insane break neck speeds, their entire bodies reduced to just a blur. Highly dextrous in the air these are the dusky crag martins who generally nest in tiny rock crevices but after they learnt about our convenient cement behemoths you can find them under most roofs and window ledges ....

. After tens, nay- several hundreds of tries over the times that ive tried photographing them this is the closest i have gotten to a decent shot, hence a personal achievement unlocked. For the camera geeks- had a shutter speed of 1/4000 set just for them haha- which is insanely quick ( for the regular folks ). Ended with a headache after an hour of squinting into the sun and trying to track them, but usually ending in an empty frame. #duskycragmartin
