This owl turned its back on the photographer - but still kept both eyes on him. The back to front Long-Eared Owl demonstrated its incredible ability to span its head through 180 degrees in a bid to keep onlookers in full view.

Keen amateur photographer Les Arnott, 56, watched in wonder as the bird, which belongs to a falconer, went through its rotational repertoire in woods at Lea Marston, Warwickshire.
