Female Great Horned Owl Screech or Smile 0364
When the day came that I stepped into the marsh and saw the nest empty, I had several feelings. The male didn't fly out from the pines either. I approached my usual spot to observe and I heard a strange noise. Way up in a 60' tree I saw an owlet and 20' below it was Mom! I stopped where I was an just clicked my shutter as the babe hopped and posed. Mom was ever watchful. She even hunted and brought dinner.
