A nice looking post here that just so happens to have a pretty good-looking topper on it. 😉
Taken back at the end of June during a camping trip on Colorado’s northeast plains. As usual, the rest of my crew was sleeping in so I was out and about at sunrise, camera in hand.
On an isolated, dirt country road, I see something on top of one of the fence posts that clearly looked out of place. Getting closer, this beautiful burrowing owl was taking a break from the family and enjoying the warm morning.
Despite its wide eyes, you notice it is standing on one foot, as raptors often do when relaxed. Clearly it wasn’t too concerned about me.
