Two Little owl are playing, or should I write irritating each other :) , while their brother is examining my track.
When they are young they are so cute and so funny, their look, their movements and their expressions are just simply a sight for sore eyes.

It is very difficult to pass the feeling in a single picture, but I hope you wil enjoy looking.

Full description you can find in my former post Little Owl.

Fantastic image, Elroyie.
It's fun the way the owl looks while the other two are busy..

Hello Neighbour,

This made me laugh!
Owls have the most bewitching faces, with their large, enquiring eyes, but this one, with its head on one side, is really questioning your skill! "Does he really know what he is doing?"

Terrific details and composition.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
