apologies on the two deer pics, only had my phone to snap it.
hedgehog has been hanging around the steps of my house, and the birdfeeder is hanging right beside my window, so i can get nice closeups.
the fish are in our pond, this years babies

Sorry, maybe it's my PC but apart from the 2 Hedgehog shots eveything else is a blur.
What time of day was this Hedgehog photographed at? It appears to be during the day; in which case I would have concerns for its' health.

Snoozing Owl

Noticed a Long Eared Owl having a bit of a snooze on the electric fence in the back garden at 6am. Got as close as I could without disturbing the bird but could have done with a decent camera.

Fair play sesswhat, I've never gotten that close to an owl before, and now that I think of it I may have never even seen one!

Thats amazing!!! Never seen one wild like that before!!! Such a beautiful bird!!! He was having a good snooze!!!

I have this shot of a barn owl...



But he's not wild unfortunately, this was taken at a county fair in Emo Court, Portlaoise, County Laois.
