Back to the Burrow

Today, I’m featuring an image that was captured at the Wichita Mountains NWR in southwest Oklahoma, a number of years ago. While photographing in the early morning, I saw this Burrowing Owl returning to his underground den, with nesting material in his beak (can you spot this owl’s mate, with only the head peering out of the burrow?):

In the early morning light, the motion of the owl returning was somewhat blurry. Oh well, still a great memory!

This image was captured pre-2004, when I was still shooting 35mm slides. I recently began converting some of those slides to digital files. It will take some time to convert my many slides, but I will be featuring some of my fond memories of early nature photography with you, as I get them converted.
