[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today I checked the great horned owl nest near Brooks that I posted on March 4th and mom had her mate visiting, he left almost as soon as I stopped but I did manage to take a couple shots of him then left quickly after seeing if I could spot any young, which I didn't. This shot was taken from my truck with bean bag support and was cropped.

Hi Rick,
Great shot. I hate branches...it's official :).
Really nice colors, natural and they give you an idea about the difficulty to spot one of these guys.

Hiya Rick :)

Another Beautiful shot! Perfect sharpness, great POV, I love the soft blue sky against this wise old owl. I'll have to remember the bean bag support trick :) I used a dock tie today!


Hi Rick,
nice natural shot of Mr.Owl and very fast posting of him too.It is a shame that in the next day or two the weather will be back to winter,that's Alberta for ya.I like the way the sunlight glows in the eyes of our owl friend and that sky is so pale a blue.A nice compo that shows the secretive bird sort of out in the open,I like it.TFS.

Hello Rick

A crisp shot of this beautiful owl.The details are very good.Very nice eye detail and colour.Well done.TFS


Another nice capture Rick. You have a good eye for spotting critters. We've found that a vehicle often makes a good blind. I have made a beanbag and my husband designed a neat platform that hooks on the window so we are all set. All we need are the animals. : ) I like the soft colors in your photo and that one eye checking you out.

Hi Rick,
this one was hard to spot in the thumb, but bouy when looking at the large picture the owl comes alive. Those eyes sure demand attention, very well captured, even though the branch is in the way iut does not distract from the main subject.
POV, sharpness and details are wondeful.

Hi Rick,

Good capture of this owl. He really does blend in with the tree yet he stands out well. The details are very nice. We have the Great Horned here but I have never seen one during the daytime.
