Spotted Owl Survey Season Again
I took my nephew out on an owl survey with me last weekend and we managed to find a hungry one.
1. Fierce Pierce and the owl:
2. Aborted attempt:
3. Really wish I hadn't clipped the wings on this one, focus could've been a little better too. Kinda cool to see the nictitating membranes though (and they kept the red-eye at bay too):
4. Okay, not in flight but it came out okay and goes with the set. I didn't have a tripod out there with me, fortunately there was a small douglas fir with a few well-placed branches. Thinking of cloning out some of the moss by the bird's head, any thoughts?
C+C welcome and appreciated, thanks for looking,
“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.”
