Screech Owlets

Vampire Owlet!

  • Hello friends! Sorry its been such a long time since I've posted. I haven't been shooting lately, so I have had nothing to post. Luckily I was inspired by a friends tip that there were 5 Eastern Screech Owlets about 50 miles away. I couldn't resist! I set off a few days ago in search of these creatures and found the area. They were on private land, so I asked for permission and was allowed access. It took awhile to find them, but once I did, I gasped at the sight of them. How lucky I was to see something so rare! They were lined up on 1 branch and I had too much lens! Damn, I didn't bring anything smaller! I made due, and here they are! Not completely shown, but 5 grey morph screech owlets side by side.

NIce shots Peggy! It was a pleasure to meet you and share the screech-owls. I am planning a trip to Florida and have some questions for you. It looks like from your blog that you have been there and done that.
