p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Burrowing Owls - Southern California


I've had a few spots near me that over the years have seen the owls come and go. Recently learned of this spot not too far from home that I've always suspected would be a great location but I never really took a look. I'm dialing in a new-to-me 500L and have also faced some stupid humans tricks by doing things like leaving home without a dang memory card, but I got a few frames today. It was getting a bit late in the morning with temperatures quickly climbing and light getting worse by the minute. Here's a couple that have me hooked on chasing these little guys again!

Thanks for looking

Thanks and Thanks! I've unfortunately had a few issues with the 500, but I think it's all working out now.

Great set with very pleasing backgrounds. In most of my Burrowing Owl shooting it's not always easy to find pleasing backgrounds.

Thanks Louie! I wasn't sure what to expect. The fields are pretty ugly with brown gras and terrain. There are some green bushes scattered here and there as well. I'm hoping to get back out and try some different things.
