    Certainly not works of art but I enjoyed finding these and shooting them.

    They look like Great Horned Owls to me in a Heron's nest. They were at least 500' away and believe me....these are cropped. It was mostly cloudy with a few peeks of sun so the light was variable...

    Thanks for the nice comments....one of these days I'll find wild owls up close and personal again.

    I'm almost looking forward to winter, even though I hate winter, because my buddies the short eared and snowy owls will be back at the end of November :)
