I'm hoping to catch her chicks in there over the next few months!Hard to spot, even knowing it had to be there. Good find. Hopefully, you can catch it more out in the open.
Thanks! Still looking for the screech owls.Your hard work pays dividends! Congrats!
Thank you!That's one heck of an image..
Thanks!I want to make a joke about how you didn't get any separation of your subject from its background. But that would be really lame. Lol!
Great photo and kudos on your patience in getting it.
Thank you. I've walked this area almost every day for the last two years. You get to know the trees and everything else; all the old snags, holes, cracks and seams. With a GHO nesting, there is sure to be a mate close by. Most other owls have probably moved a bit further away. GHOs are the top bird predators in the area and will take smaller owls if they can.Nice find and shot. Imagine how many other trees you walk by that are hiding these treasures.
Thanks! Move slowly. Look everywhere.A good lesson for anyone who watches or shoots wildlife. Nicely done.
