Burrowing Owls On Watch
Photo By Steve Perry

  • Title: Burrowing Owls On Watch
  • State/Province/Region: Florida
  • Country: United States
  • Best Season: Summer
  • 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.

    Thanks Alena and David! I took a lot of shots of this landscape, but placing a person in the shot imparted the sense of amazement and exhilaration I was trying to capture. Merry Christmas!

    Exhilarating photo Laura! Being in the foreground gives the viewer the sense of how vast and spectacular our earth is. The image also allows for the outdoor photographer to reflect back on times...
