While I was shooting this scene this morning and holding my breath that the owl didn't grab one of my little red squirrels, there was another red to the right barking away along with a chorus of birds warning Danger Danger Danger!
even the hummingbirds were confronting the Owl danger and sounding the alarm!
Slide show above are a few highlights from last evening (May 29th) The fading light made for tricky shooting but well worth the effort. A pair of Barred Owls arrived and one was vocalizing some unusual lyrics. Below.. the fuzzy photo shot at high iso and very low shutter speed happened a second or 2 before this Owl zoomed across the top of my camera and so close to my head that I felt its wings touch my hair .. but absolutely silent. I was blessed by these Owls and they gave me another chance this morning to capture their images. Have a blessed Sunday ... TerryV (Thank you for looking)
Summer 2023.. I just received notice that my blog has been awarded a distinction of being one of the top 10 photography blogs in Canada.
