Photo Of The Day By smkeena

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Burrowing Owlet Duo” by smkeena. Location: Near Calipatria, California.

“Two young burrowing owlets (Athene cunicularia) exploring just outside of their burrow at sunrise, taking in the big world that awaits them,” describes smkeena. “As they became more comfortable with my presence, they hopped and frolicked around their burrow watching me watching them.”

Canon EOS-1D X. Exposure: 1/2500 sec., f/5, ISO 640.
