One more from my encounter with the long eared owls on the Colorado plains.
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, it took a lot of work and I only came away with a few decent captures. This one has to be my favorite and judging by the look on its face, it was as surprised to see me as I was it.
These guys were so buried in this thick brush they were almost impossible to spot until you were right up on them. At one point, I am crouched over, working my way through the shrubbery and I look up and there this one was, not 30 feet away. I was able to grab just a couple quick shots before it headed off to a more concealed area.
A fun encounter for sure!
