On Tuesday, I decided I needed to get my camera out, so spent part of the evening on a drive NW of town.   Lots to see, but the highlight was the Great Grey Owl at Wild Cat…First spotted on a fence post in the shade…Then, up into the trees for a better hunting spot…and great light!!…checking me out…..a few misses in the tree, so down by the creek to see what it could find……check out those wings…massive tools and so quiet in flight……spotted something, another miss…the grass was so long that it disappeared when it hit the ground……back into the shade with a quick stop on the gate before heading off into the trees! 18 palabras más
