    Hi you'll,

    I've been laid up since my surgery last week (minor, just a hernia), The day before my operation I went down to the Viera Wetlands to shoot. On my first visit to the wetlands over 12 months ago I saw an owl (couldn't get a shot off) and haven't seen one since then. Everytime I go to the wetlands I stop by the place where I first saw that owl with no luck until last week. There he was in the same exact spot where I first saw him 12 months ago!

    Thanks Glenn. That sleepy stuff was all a ruse because he took off right after that shot.

    Great catch Harry. I'm still looking for my first Owl.

    I'm glad to see that you are out and about (and shooting) again. Hope everything has healed up OK.
