Soaring

A Northern Hawk Owl taking flight and soaring over the a field towards the setting sun Southern Alberta.

 

Despite how small he was, this owl was very accommodating, and didn’t seem to mind me taking his photo while it hunted, perched on posts, and even in a tree, whereas some other birds you don’t tend to get so lucky.

 

While Northern Hawk Owls live throughout Alberta, to get a chance to see one, and photograph it in flight was awesome.
