Photographing these owls is the same as taking drugs...more...more...more!
I decided to take a fast run over to Ile Bizard this afternoon to see how Sally and friends were doing. Sally wasn't around but I ran accross Mikey looking for an afternoon snack.
He was sitting in a tree about 30 feet from me and suddenly dove into the field.....
He had caught a mouse and decided to eat it on the ground. He then proceeded to take off and started flying right towards me!
I just kept on shooting, praying that the AF was tracking
It was very apparent that he didn't see me (I was wearing camo) or he didn't care...
I thought that I might have to duck!
He finally landed in a tree right over my head. I had to crouch to get the next two shots casue he was too close for the AF to work

I know that I've blown the maximum images per post rule but I'm so damn excited. Mods can flog me
