2019 Short-eared Owls

Well, I’m back! For those that have wondered about my absence, let me just say that I’ve been through some interesting times lately. I received an email from a “hacker”, informing me that my website had been hacked and I was being extorted for $$. Well, taking this seriously, I decided to not post anything […]

As usual, whenever an outing goes very well, it’s […]

Owl Prowl, Part 1

Today’s post features some images I captured this past Saturday, as I photographed Short-eared Owls as they began their hunting ritual around sunset. Short-eared Owls are not year-round residents in my area. But in winter, they often will migrate southward, from the upper Midwest prairies, to prairie land in Missouri. These owls are one of […]

Fun Friday: Please, Not So Loud!

Today’s Fun Friday post comes from a rural Cass County (Missouri) Great Horned Owl nest that I am following. This nest has a pair of chicks that are growing by leaps and bounds. When I captured this image, it appears that the one chick is yelling into the other’s ear. But in reality, he was […]

Last Friday, I spent the morning photographing an active Great Horned Owl nest. If you caught my images last year, this is the same nest as I photographed last spring. The only exception is that this year, there are two owlets instead of one! Twice as much fun for me! Here are a few of […]

GH Owl Chick Update

After my wildflower workshop this past Saturday morning, I ran over and checked on the little Great Horned Owl chick that I featured a short while back. I’m trying to get over to the nest about every 7-10 days so that I can capture a photo history of the single chick in the nest. When […]

Fun Friday: Furball

Two days ago, I was able to get over to my friends Pete and Ginny’s house for some “fun fotography”. The day before, Ginny had contacted me about a new addition in their rural acreage … an active Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus) with a just-hatched chick. So, the next day I headed over with […]

Nesting Great Horned Owls

This morning I found some nesting Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus) images from early spring 2009 that I don’t believe I’ve shared. These images were made in a city park in Lee’s Summit, Missouri: It was a rather cold, windy day (you can see the adult’s “horns”, which are only tufts of feathers, leaning to […]

I hope to be back on “real time” real soon! Last weekend, I participated in the “ArtsFest on Walnut Street” art festival in Springfield, Missouri. I met a […]
