PUBLISHED: 13:30 06 February 2019
This incredible wildlife close-up shot capturing a barn owl mid-hunt has been crowned The Journal’s Picture of the Week.
The epic photograph was taken by 34-year-old Martin Crossman, from Lowestoft.
He said: “I patiently waited hidden up in a hedgerow after spotting the owl hunting.
“Fortunately it flew directly towards me, I held out as long as possible to take the shot and was rewarded with this.
“Barn owls are my favourite birds and this one just stood out with the mood of the photo.”
As our winner, Mr Crossman receives a 10in x 8in framed version of his photo from Picture Studios, of London Road North, in Lowestoft town centre. Entries can be of any subject but they must be digital images.
