Sometimes when taking pictures you have one of those ‘wow’ moments and this was definitely one for me. I stopped to check a nearby Great Horned Owl nest.
When I get there I can see brand new little ones in the nest but no mama. Soon after, guess who comes back? She gave me an absolutely extraordinary sequence of pics. She then repeated this going from the nest tree to another and back again – three times! Each time I captured the sequence. It was a lot of fun.
