Mostly photos. Occasionally waffle.
Wow, cool capturers of the short-eared owl. I would love to see one up close..
Thanks Eileen! We have had a pretty good year for these birds this year and it's not quite over yet!J
Super series John.
They really are stunning pictures.
Great photos of the owl - especially the in-flight captures.
These are awesome flight shots! Gorgeous!
These are beautiful captures.
wow! Fantastic shots.
Thanks Margaret (for both comments)!J
I like the way they twist their heads to keep their eyes level and turn to look at you as they go by. And you've captured both these behaviours here.
Thanks John! Once they spot something in the undergrowth, they don't take their eyes off it.J
Lovely images John.
Their faces have a hypnotic quality
The whole bird hypnotises me Simon.J
Very nice collection indeed John.
Fantastic! He even looks like he's looking at you in one of the shots! I'd be thrilled to get so many great photos.
Thanks Marie! He's keeping his beady eye on me!J
Because an owl's face is quite flat look it has anthropomorphic qualities. They really do look intelligent which is probably where the idea of a 'wise' bird comes from. However, a quick bit of internet research has shown me that they are, in fact, among the least intelligent of birds! CLICK HERE for Bazza’s fabulous Blog ‘To Discover Ice’
