Flying Burrowing Owl
I've photographed 3 different owls flying in the 6 or
so years since I started doing wildlife photography. One was a total
accident and the other 2 just lucky breaks. Contrary to popular belief,
owls come out in the daytime. The burrowing owl actually spends most
of his time in daylight. Owls are incredibly silent fliers...it is eerie.
I had one fly right above my head and I never heard it. Damn near pissed
my pants but never heard it...and did not get the shot.
