New Life in the Forest

This Great Horned Owlet has been visible at the refuge to visitors for a couple of weeks but it’s the first look I have had of the cute youngster.  Taken on a fairly dark, overcast morning, June 2, 2014, at the Ridgefield NWR.   Canon 5D Mark III, 1/250, f4, ISO 2000, 500mm.

  1. WOW! Another amazing photograph!! So clear I feel as though i could reach out and feel the soft feathers(…and lose a finger! Haha)
    Thanks Dennis!

    1. Ha! Thanks, Sue! I was lucky when I first saw the bird as it was out in the open. It didn’t take long and it walked behind some branches. So I had a good look at it for a minute or so.
