Newchapel, UK

This is the moment just before an eagle owl swoops in for the kill. The image was taken by Matt Binstead of the British Wildlife Centre. The BWC is Britain’s only native wildlife centre housing more than 50 species of British animal from adders and field mice to red squirrels, weasels and wildcats. Matt said that because of his job, he is able to capture scenes that would be very difficult in the wild. He said: “We breed many animals here, and not often do you see photos of baby wild animals as they are very hard to find in the wild.” (via Telegraph)
