Great Horned Owls



We went out to see these two young owls Sunday, the weather was ok, certainly not light, mostly overcast. So the photo is dark but you can see that it is an owl. There are two actually, the other is behind the first. It was great to walk and chat, and get some photos for the future. Click to enlarge.

Once, long ago I saw a little greyish white owl in my backyard just at dusk. Never saw it again, and really haven't seen any since. Wish I would.
Great photo.
