I heard from somebody at work that there was this owl nesting in a nearby forest preserve. So I went this weekend looking for it and got a few shots. There were two owlets too, but I was able to see only one, when he peeked up for a brief moment. :)

I second Gale's WOW!! These are great. I've yet to ever see an owl. They are high on my list of desirable targets.

Very nice Vinod. :wink:

I make this out to be a Long Eared Owl. Great find and nice shots. love the contrast
Hi Greg,
I am not able to figure out if it is the Long Eared Owl or the Great Horned Owl, they both look very similar. I'll do some more research :D

Fantastic. The second shot is my favorite! I am soooo jealous of those shots! Great job.

Thanks Steve, Virginia, Don and Frits...I was lucky that the mom was around at the time I went, I heard it is usually out looking for food :)
