Hanging out, flying around

These two Great horned owls flew between various perches among the strip of trees I found them in east of High River.  I watched them for two hours as the morning’s overcast sky brightened.  They were unsettled by ravens a couple of times but mostly seemed to be resting while keeping eyes on the fields they looked over.   When they did fly it was worth the wait.

  9. They’re amazing Christopher – the middle shot really surprised me because I didn’t notice the second owl until I scrolled back again – that was a real wow moment. Such beautiful creatures.
