Back to the Long Eared Owls
Yesterday I went back to the Owl woods and found six of them all roosting together and all kind of wishing I would just go away. When I first got there and looked down from the top of the cliff with my camera I scared them and one blew up to at least twice his original size (see photo below and click for full effect.) I guess he was trying to scare me back. I again started talking to them in a soft voice and slid slowly down the cliff on my backside while holding the big lens. I was able to slowly walk around to face them and get a good enough view to avoid all the twigs and leaves they were hiding behind. Oh my, it is just amazing to see these beautiful creatures so close. I have to restrain myself and give them space and not go back for a while so they will stay. Keep your fingers crossed.
