Little cutie from the archives

Little cutie from the archives
Found deep within my archives, taken on 24 February 2008. That morning, we managed to find two of the Northern Pygmy-owls in Fish Creek Park. Both were extremely high up in trees in the same area. After lunch, I went back to have a quick look again and came across this little guy immediately. Couldn't believe my luck! Unfortunately, the light in amongst the trees was not good at all, especially for my little point-and-shoot camera. Not the best quality, but some sharpening and brightening did help. These tiny popcan-size owls were the highlight of many people's day! A few people do see them outside the city, but it has been such a long time since I saw one. Grabbed two or three of these old photos before sending the file to my external hard drive, where it will probably never see daylight again : )

I would LOVE to see (and photograph) some of these adorable owls! My cousin posted one on Facebook that she saw in the Okanagan over Christmas and I was immediately smitten! It's so nice to see another one here on your photo stream, even if it is an older photo. I hope if I can't see one for awhile yet that you are able to see and capture more of them!
