Default Great Horned Owl Pair

These are not as clean as my previous G.H. owl post a week ago but I was blown away when I saw this pair sitting in the same tree that I found the single in last time. I wish the branches and wind would have cooperated a little better but it was sure fun catching both of these Owls in the same tree.

If I get the time and the gumption I might try to clone out the little branches. I tried to time my shots so the eyes weren't totally covered. I had some success. Some.

#2 There were both looking over to the auto tour road to watch the next car in the parade. Funny thing was, almost no one else was spotting these two. Even though I was stopped and pointing my big 200-400mm Nikon lens right at them. People are funny.

Here's a link to more of these two if you care.

Hey Steve, I think your first photo is a complete success. The foliage adds so much to the composition of the scene - I think it helps to draw out the coloration of the birds (and their eyes) and to emphasize the camouflage. Really well done!! Cheers, Dan

Thanks Dan, I guess I never thought about it that way.
