• 2012***Image of the Week 04/11/2012-Winner**Richard Jackson**

    A standout winner this week was Richard Jackson's night image of a Barn Owl (Tyto Javanica) in flight. A skilfully taken image, with a high degree of difficulty. Well done Richard.



    Wins it for me....contrasts here are amazing...very engaging with the eye contact
    Just Superb!
    great BIF. must be hard to get such a high quality photo like this at night.
    Too good!
    Excellent photograph and recognition of Richards technique that made it possible.
    Lovely lighting and feather textures in this night-time BIF shot
    Amazing in flight shot, love the extension of the wings and the bird is beautifully exposed.
    Other nominated images were;

    Striated Thornbill ~ Chris Steeles
    Golden Bowerbird ~ Tyto Tony
    Spotless Crake ~ Anthony (Boydbowlin)
    Australian Pelican (A Long Road travelled) ~ Ian Colley
