photographing and learning about wildlife
My lucky spotting of the week! I have been watching several nesting pairs of great horned owls near my house over the last month and a half. On Sunday, I went to check in on one of them. Just as I pulled up, I saw the female land on one of the low lying branches with a huge snake in her mouth. I snapped off several pictures as she flew to the nest to feed her two chicks. Pretty rare to see GHO in the daylight hours hunting. (Although I know that when they have chicks they hunt through out the day and night.) Most of my pictures didn't come out, even though I spent an hour watcher her feed her babies. However, I did get a few good ones of her in the nest as well. I will post the other pics as soon as I get a chance.
