Short Flight

A Short-Eared Owl in flight, flies directly by me and gives me “the look”.  On this particular spring day there were at least 10 different Short-Eared Owls all within a very small radius.  At one times there were three perched along fence posts right in a row.  I think what I like the best about these particular owls is just how captivating their eyes are, and even in flight, you are drawn right to their eyes.

 

While my nature photography tends to be on large mammals, I always enjoy getting out and looking for the various owls that live in Alberta, and this day was certainly not a waste.
