Immature Little Owl by WNPhotography Immature Little Owl by WNPhotography
:star: ORDER A PRINT HERE ON MY WEBSITE :star:

Here is a photograph of an immature little owl.
This was an amazing evening! I was sitting in the hide for the first time at the site, and had already seen signs of droppings on my perch that I had set up etc.

Within an hour and a half of waiting, I looked up and saw a young one sitting on the top of a barn wall stretching its neck. A little later and I heard a screech to my right. Looking round, I saw another (mature) little owl swoop into the tree just a few feet from my head. Then it vanished, and a few minutes later I looked to the left to see the owl sitting a few feet from my hide windowm on the same gnarled branch that is in this photo, just staring at me. Then craning round even further I saw this immature owl sitting even closer to me! It then flew at the adult owl and forced it off the perch. I then took this shot!

It was an amazing evening and just great to watch. Anyway, I'll be back there most days now!

 This might well be the fluffiest creature I've yet seen depicted on deviantART! (and it's interesting to note that the problems posed by uppity children are far from unique to the Human condition).:D (Big Grin) 

 Keep up the good work.
