Short-eared Owls, Loch Leven (2)

I spent a recent afternoon watching the Short-eared Owls at Loch Leven.  Once again, three individuals put in an appearance.  Here are some of the photos I took that afternoon; it's a shame the weather conditions weren't brighter.

Excuse me Owl, please can you look this way?
Thank you!
