Owl and baby

  1. 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:

  4. That second shot is great with the mom in the background but yet the image concentrates on the baby. Well done and what a fortunate sighting.
  5. Nice shootin'! :D :D

    I make this out to be a Long Eared Owl. Great find and nice shots. love the contrast
  9. Vinod,

    Just superb! What a great opportunity and you sure took advantage of it. Great shots, all 3. I think I prefer #2 as well, by a ... feather.
  10. Very nice I am dying to someday get a chance to shoot these guys, I have always been fascinated by these birds.
  11. Thanks everyone for the kind comments, I will probably make another trip there sometime soon. :)

  12. 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
