Shot these the other day. At first, I thought it was the Pygmy Owl again, but nope, it's a Saw-whet. Cute little guy sat there for a couple of hours sunning itself. I was hoping it'd do more, but no luck other than the odd head turn, and it never did open its eyes wide for me. But just seeing it was a thrill for me......cheers...Don

Very nice Don, looks like he would rather you went away so he could sleep.

Great fun to get shots of wildlife you rarely find where you can actually take the time to capture just the right composition.

Thanks Tom. I'm pretty sure he did want me to take off. But apparently according to one of the bird experts, they think you can't see them. Even though you got a lens stuck in their face, they think they're invisible. No wonder they don't spook.....Don

Maybe the light was too bright for its eyes - still an opportunity to get a bird more often heard than seen. Lucky you!
