Thank you everyone for all your wonderful comments. I was a true pleasure and great experience to be able to shoot these owlets last year. Thanks again, Graham McGeorge
Graham, did you have a photo of the parent owl selected back in early June '13? I have one I downloaded from NG credited to you, and the bark and outline of the nest seem to match. If so, can we assume they were taken as part of the same session?
They are like three little kids bored at home in a cold winter day, they are not allowed to get out. I have special interest in owls but this picture was different, bravo.
Su forma de mirar y su atención fue por los griegos que personificaron a Atenea ,diosa de la sabiduría,
This is a great picture as it shows the owls curious about what is happening outside the trunk. The expressions in their eyes are amazing. Congratulations!
Very beautiful capture with outstanding clarity...Love it! Congratulations on your well deserved Photo of the day!
Thank you very much everyone for all your wonderful comments. It is a true honor to have my image selected for photo of the day. I thank you all.
I love birds of prey, especially when they're young and manageable. These 3 guys look like they're expecting a treat from the photographer.
Such a beautiful photo! I love the expressions and textures.
As a high school student with a passion for photography, National Geographic is always inspirational!
Apparently the owlets are as curious about us as we are them. Wonderful, delightful photograph. Amazing how nature camouflages it's own.
@Charles Spencer Yes that is correct. I took this series over a couple of months in early spring 2013.
