Fledgling Burrowing Owls in the midst of summer wildflowers.



  1. Well, they are not on a stick, anyway, Rex. I liked that is conveyed the small size of these little owls.
    This is from summer 2014. I figured that if you had already seen it you may have forgotten by now!
    I had a hard time remembering how to post since it has been so long.

  2. Hi, good to see you posting again. Nigel struggles a bit with posting, but he is retiring in May so perhaps he will devote a bit of time to mastering it! :-)
    I don’t know if this is true but someone told me that US nature photographers like to ensure that the environment that the “animals” live in is depicted in the image whereas UK nature photographers like to fill the frame with the animal. For me the size of the owls is emphasised by the expanse of the flower meadow. The eye contact is a bonus. :-)
    Nora and I are visiting the Arena seminar this weekend, it has been a good first day. I will update you later.

    • Hi Christina

      Welcome back to posting. I’ve just started trying again.

      I really like this, and much prefer the context the flowers give to the owls than a closer view. Not only foes it give the owls scale, it also gives the picture interest and balance, and joy as well. It celebrates life. Whereas a study possibly wouldn’t.
