photographing and learning about wildlife
Stumbled across this recently fledged Great Horned Owl chick. I saw the bird from behind at first (2nd photo) and immediately knew that I was in a for a treat. The bird wasn't particularly well hidden but hopefully it learns the art of stealth and camouflage soon.
Woods near large pond.
Checked to see if any adults GHO were around, perhaps standing guard of their young, but I couldn't detect any.
