Young snapper captures an owl

SUFFOLK: This amazing image of an owl in flight was captured not by one of our photographers but by the four-year-old son of a Star reader.

Zac Hawley's mum, Emma, sent us the incredible photo taken during a visit to Suffolk Owl Sanctuary, in Stonham Aspal.

Zac was delighted to be at the sanctuary after being absent on the day bird handlers visited his nursery in Rushmere.

Mrs Hawley said: “He loves taking pictures so I let him have my camera during the flight show.

“He was walking around and taking a few snaps. When the owl starting flying towards him, instead of jumping out of the way, like I would have done, he dropped to one knee and took the photo.

“I'm no photographer but I think it's an amazing photo.”
