From the smallest in our area
to the largest of Raptors...
would be the
Great Horned Owl.
In the past it was always that I would see an American Kestrel and it would immediately take flight and I got very few images and then all of a sudden in the past few weeks, I have had a spot of good fortune with them.
One of my dreams has been to photograph a Great Horned Owls nest and I am so pleased to say that dream has come to pass.
If everything goes according to plan, then every couple of weeks I will make the trek to check on, and photograph the nest, and hopefully young along the way.
I want to take this opportunity to thank June and Beau Solley.
Were it not for their kindness,
I might have never had this chance.
Some may remember last Summer when Beau, a Master Falconer allowed my grandson Thomas to hold his Red-tailed Hawk Olivia.
Beau was my guide into this hard to get to nest site and I am so grateful to having had him there to show the way.
Here is hoping that the nest thrives and that in coming weeks even more image shares shall be possible.
I am linking up with Stewart at:

Oh My Goodness, who would not adore this image of Mr. and Mrs. Kestrel...this was just one of those moments that you could have never planed on...perfect~
