Barn Owl feather - Tyto alba

Our neighbour started to water his field with the canon this evening ...The sound of the canon and the artificial rain woke up this poor Barn Owl ..She had a shock and flied over my head as I tried to avoid the water too...then she hit on the wires of the enclosure of our property ...I hope she didn't harm herself as she flied higher and disappeared but before I had a nice rare sighting of her during the day light ...She left this feather, my son collected it (kostis was lucky too to watch this rare sighting) and my nephew took this pic by his mobile phone ...

No need to ask about the background of the photo is a backgammon board !!!!
