Time for a snack
FROM THE ARCHIVES, unfortunately : ) I noticed that this was one of the photos I put aside from a folder of photos taken on 25 March 2012, NW of Calgary, before saving the file to my external hard drive. Thought I'd post it today. This was such an amazing family of Northern Hawk Owls - adults and one owlet - who gave us such a delightful chance to watch, both before and after the young one was hatched. We felt so privileged to be allowed into their little world over a period of many weeks. It was an hour and a half's drive up there, but so worth it when rewarded with sights such as this one, of Mom or Dad with a Meadow Vole that it had caught.
