This wonderful shot capturing the rare moment two barn owls shared a perch mid-hunt was taken by Kevin Coote at Carlton Marshes.

The 55-year old from Lowestoft used his Canon 7D MKII to take the shot.

Mr Coote said: 'I am a keen amateur wildlife photographer and spend many hours on the marshes.

'I was very lucky to get this shot, it was a case of right place, right time as it is quite rare to see two adult barn owls together like this.

'They had been hunting apart but all of a sudden came together on the branch for a few moments.
