Description

Burrowing Owls just might be my very favorite bird! The adults are small, coming in just a bit bigger than your hand. However, they are chock-full of attitude and always seem quite fearless. They actually nest by burrowing into the ground and are, if you can forgive the pun, a hoot to watch! Anyhow, we found these guys in Cape Coral FL and I was actually having a pretty great time photographing mom when I see this little head slowly rise up from the burrow! As the little owlet grew “taller” right before my eyes, I quickly made a minor change in camera position and captured the two of them together. The moment only last a few seconds, then mom hopped a few steps too far away, but luckily that was all that was needed to grab this shot.
