Photo of the Week 2016 #38


I was stalking this burrowing owl who was perched on top of a pine tree near his home, a hole in the ground. I walked very slowly toward him taking a few pictures every step or to in order to get a picture of him as close as I could get. As I crept closer he decided that I was close enough and leapt into the air and soared over my head for a moment or two before perching on top of a pine tree about 30 feet away.
