You may recall an image I posted a couple of weeks ago of a mama great horned owl and two owlets sitting in their nest in a recent snowfall. After I snapped some pics of the trio, I started scanning the nearby stand of trees looking for dad.
I knew he had to be there, they never go far, but for the life of me, I couldn’t find him. I gave up, got back in my truck and just as I put it in drive, I took one last look and there he was – totally hiding in plain sight.
I was so focused on trying to find him in the usual, hard to spot type places they would be, I didn’t notice he was pretty much out in the open. While the look on his face said he wasn’t too happy about being spotted, he did let me get some shots that looked pretty neat with the snow coating the trees.
