Spent last evening in a hde sweltering in the heatwave, waiting to see if I could get any shots of a Little Owl that was known to visit on occasion. After waiting 5 1/2 hours and watching the light fade, I had almost given up when at 8.20PM it appeared briefly on a fence not far from me. Luckily the sun was at a point just before it disappeared for good and lit the post with the background in the shade, which allowed me to get a decent shot with a blurry background but well lit subject. It only stayed for about a minute before some wasps were bothering it and it flew off into a tree. These are beautiful little birds, always have an 'angry' expression, but will tolerate a bit of human interaction.
