What a HOOT!

Great Horned Owl
 No words today.  Just enjoy the series of pics.  Sometimes you wish a moment could go on forever.  My hands twitched with anticipation as I held my camera.  The Great Horned Owl.
















 Have a good weekend!

Thanks for the pics & blog, Kevin

A willing owl posing still or in flight. I can imagine what you felt when you saw this beauty.

these are fabulous!

i don't believe your site triggers any of the auto-download virus stuff, but several other sites i visit do. norton shuts 'em down for me, thankfully.

I gazed in awe at all these photos of the owl, Chris. He looks wise and dignified. The picture of him in the air is awesome! This site is no problem with me. Have a happy weekend.

Awesome photos!!! I love owls. My parents have a pair of owls that have started sitting on their grain silo.
I have not had any trouble with your blog. If I did, I'd let you know.
I got an error on another friend's blog a while back and it gave me the website in the error. She found that website was one of her followers. When she blocked the follower, the error went away.

What fantastic photos, Chris! (I find myself saying that here so often.) I think my hands would have been shaking so much I would have missed getting any photos at all!

Desert Dweller said...

Killer shots. I saw an owl in flight and hear them rarely here. But definitely not by day...deprived!

No malware, bots, viruses, worms, or other jive have appearred after using your blog. Seems another blog months ago did do that to me, though.

I really enjoyed seeing your spectacular Great Horned Owl images!

Rohrerbot said...

Thank you everyone for helping me out with that virus scare. Everything has checked out on my end here and with blogger so that's good. About the posts that are coming....I am really excited about the month of April. Some of the hikes, gardening, and finds have been absolutely incredible....and I'm hoping you'll really enjoy the series of pics that are to come. My tracking is getting better with the birds and butterflies.

Gaelyn said...

Your tracking was outstanding on these owl shots. WOW! You were both the watchers.

What kind of lens did you use?

Rohrerbot said...

For this shoot and most of my bird shots, I use the 75-300 lense. I take about 700 shots and get two really nice ones:)

Marianne said...
