More Little Owls

Yesterday lunchtime I got up close and personal with the local Little Owl and then realised I hadn’t got my camera!!!! So I returned in the evening and was rewarded with a real treat. I’d driven up close using my car as a hide and the owl didn’t seem at all perturbed as it basked in some glorious late evening sunshine.

After about ten minutes posing the owl began calling and at first I thought that maybe I was stressing it out and was about to beat a hasty retreat when the mate arrived.

Within seconds the first owl had flown but the new arrival continued soaking up the sun and after having a good scratch almost nodded off.

I’ve never got close enough for pictures like these so hopefully they’ll get used to the car and allow me to get this close soon.
