Mr. Owl

This is the Burrowing Owl that hangs out on top of our metal storage building. Just a point-and-shoot Nikon and I'm no photographer, so these are not National Geographic quality.


Of course he flew off when I got too close. I snapped as fast as I could while keeping the camera pointed at him. This is the only good moving pic of him out of the half-dozen I took.
This owl has a spouse that flies off long before I can get a shot of both of them.


  1. Looks like he woke up on the wrong side of the cactus that morning.

  2. Hi Geoff,

    Yes, and he always looks grumpy like that.

    I like living out in the sticks. I get to see lots of desert critters like Roadrunners, Sidewinders, Scorpions, Hawks, Vultures, Coyotes, Jackrabbits ... you name it, I've seen 'em.
