This week’s reader photo was taken by Trevor in Queensland.
“The barn owl (Tyto alba) has the largest distribution of all the species of owl and one of the most widespread of all birds,” says Trevor.
“I was lucky enough to capture this one mid-flight – and in the middle of the day – as they are usually only seen at night.”
