2006-02-23 - Oscar the Owl

I'm away in New Zealand until the end of the month so I'm running a series of old photos that I took in 2003 as part of a university assignment. See the first entry in the series for more details.

This is Oscar, as named by my next door neighbour - although quite tame for a wild owl, he wouldn't ever come down from his high perch. I took this photo by holding the camera at full stretch above my head. If you look closely, you can see me reflected in his eye.
