What a terrific group shot, Judy. I'm still hoping to see something like this myself one of these days, but so far no luck. #1572182

Thanks Mitch. It was fun to see these little owls. They watched birds and airplanes fly over and they cleaned their burrows by digging more sand and debris out. They are so cute with their big yellow eyes. Hope you get your chance to see them, it is a joy to do so. #11039534

They just look so unreal to me in photos; I have never had the pleasure to encounter them. Superb image, Judy. #11041018
