Default Now they're all over! Another Great Horned Owl

So, I have 3 other nests to check out now. My students and friends have told me a few places. This one I hit on my way home from work. talk about convenient. There were supposed to be 2 little ones but I couldnt see them. They may have been back a bit further. The sun was directly in my eyes so I will go back soon. Im happy with what I got for the 3 minutes I was there.

landscape shot


Portrait shot (both different shots, but they look the same.

Difficult light maybe, but you did well, Jeremy, as they are pretty darn decent shots. Looking forward to more owl shots from you!

The trees have eyes.....and owls! They're everywhere!
That's great Jeremy, and I'm pretty impressed w/what you did in the tough lighting you had. Both images are very clear and sharp and have wonderful background interest.
Can't wait for more!
