A moment to treasure

I was driving to Wisbech last night through the Fens, and there are ditches or dykes alongside the roads out there. The moon was bright but kept disappearing behind clouds and then coming out again - and the most glorious sight occurred: a beautiful white barn owl swooped up out of the dyke and flew alongside the road for a few seconds before whirling round and going back the way it had come as I drove off. The moonlight was reflected on its plumage and it was a truly amazing picture!

I wished I had been able to take a photograph, but you just have to imagine....
