The golden light of sunrise on these two little great horned owls yesterday morning.
Last week I posted an image of this nest showing mama sitting in it and a very well-hidden owlet underneath her. The scene was quite different on my most recent visit.
Mama was perched beside the nest and inside were these two curious owlets. I am absolutely in love with this capture. Those beautiful yellow eyes peering out, half-hidden, make for a pretty neat shot.
The adult female was initially just off to the right but decided she didn’t want her picture taken and moved behind the trunk and out of sight.
