Pictured: A tawny owl hovers in the air for a split second before swooping down on its prey

Pictured: A tawny owl hovers in the air for a split second before swooping down on its prey

Its launch pad was an old fence post. And the countdown lasted only as long as it took to spot lunch scampering nearby.

Within seconds, this hungry tawny owl was on the way up, launching itself vertically into the air like a Harrier jump jet.

Then there was a split second of hovering, gathering its wings in close, before spreading them wide and swooping away in pursuit of its prey.


Jump jet: A tawny owl's prey doesn't stand a chance after being spotted by the bird a split second before it swooped

Photographer Steve Waterhouse, 52, captured the images near his home in Plympton, Devon. He started taking wildlife shots 18 months ago.

'It was just one of those very rare moments when you capture the essence of a beautiful creature,' he said.


All systems go: The owl in mid-air, about to swoop away
