I visited Florida as a guest of Virgin Holidays, who fly direct to Miami from London Heathrow. See the sexy disclosure policy.

    How’d you get so close? I thought owls were kinda’ bashful. Beautiful though.

      This owl was in a sanctuary for injured animals…so, I’m not sure whether they grew accustomed to human presence from that…or whether I was just lucky!

    That’s cool! And cheeky. I’d like to know how close you were too … or was it just a really great zoom?

      Hehe. Both. I was about two metres away, I’d guess…
