Sreech Owl chick

This is a Screech Owl chick. I had to get down flat on the ground, with my telephoto lens, and hope that at 1/15 sec both he and I would hold still long enough to get a photo.

The chick was an orphan. I'm happy to say that both he and I grew up to be productive members of our species.


This is a Great Horned Owl. You can see all the details in his irises. Once more, thanks be for telephoto lenses. Close up of Great Horned Owl face
