Today's picture of the day is from Ian Metcalfe and shows an owl in flight with its prey.

Mr Metcalfe says he has being going to this location, at Winterborne Came, near Dorchester, for the last three to four years hoping to get a good picture of an owl.

He finally got his picture - and what a stunning shot.

He says: "Looks like it was the end for poor old ratty!"
