    Having visited Beale Park back in February and seeing very little worth shooting, I wasn't entirely sure how today would fair. I needn't have worried... it was an exceptional day. The animals were more active, the sun was out and the company was brilliant. My only gripe... barn owls are a nightmare to shoot in flight!! Thanks Mandy for yet another fantastic day!
