The Owl

The Owl

The story behind this photo is a bit funny. The owl had been following me and a friend for some time as we where hunting on the island of Senja in the north of Norway. Suddenly it came closer and decided to land in a tree right next to where I was standing. As I grab the camera from my backpak I stumble in some bush, but are able to fire a couple of shots before I hit the ground. Like the end result myself, and the picture won a photo contest last year in one of the largest nature photo magazines in Scandinavia. A really lucky shot one might say :-)
