More Great Grays…

Another great morning in K’ Country looking for, well, whatever… We spotted the 3 owl chicks on the fence posts first, so pulled over to get some images of them as they squawked back and forth to each other and to their parents – somewhere. It wasn’t long before dad flew back and dropped off a big fat vole to one of the chicks, and then headed back out over the field to continue hunting. Shortly afterwards, he caught another vole, so I placed myself between him and the chicks, hoping his return path would bring him in front of my lens… It did.

And all of my camera settings were right! So excited to have gotten this image… These birds are truly impressive, and to have this one come by me at less than 5 meters, mouth full, fulfills a dream shot for me.
