Wonderful shots! The only time I've ever seen one is in a zoo, and I was really surprised at just how small they are. I always think of owls as being big birds.

These are really nice. I've never seen burrowing owls. The feather detail is remarkable!

Those are excellent shots. I shot some in Cibola Wildlife Refuge in Arizona but your photos are much better quality.

Spectacular shots! # 3 with the reflection in the eyes is my favorite.
