Probably the best shot I have ever gotten of an owl doing this. Watching owls can oftentimes be a bit boring as they do tend to sit for long periods of time. Sometimes though, they put on a bit of a show and such was the case this past Friday evening.
Thunderstorms were rolling by and the wind was howling quite a bit. One of the owlets had hopped from the nest and was across the trail while the other two remained in the nest. This meant mom and multiple spots to watch and she was keeping her head on a swivel. That gave me some nice looks including this.
