Hi Henrik,

This is a great set and a super story. Owls always look so strange when wet

Morris


Thanks Morris. And yes, they truly do. So much character.

Images like this aren’t just chanced upon; it’s clear that you’ve put in a lot of time in the field in order to be prepared to capture these. Well done, sir!


Ah thanks pal. Hope all is well.

Great set of images of these owl chicks. Is it normal for the chicks to fledge at this age—they look awfully young, just judging from their feathers?


It is normal. They are safer sitting up in the trees but this little one didn't quite have the strength to climb yet.

Fine set and interesting story. Hope mom can drag this inquisitive one back.


She won't but the little one will hopefully be able to climb within days.

Wonderful set of images of this GGO owlet. I'm jealous of your opportunity to experience and capture the owlet's efforts.

Excellent set, Henrick. The owlet looks pretty forlorn in the last one. Hypothermia must be an issue with these little ones.


When it rained, it definitely was. I have some video in which you can clearly see the owl shaking (as well as see it's breath).

Wow that last one Henrik, those eyes are doing a lot of talking.
#2 is just the bomb
Is there an owl in #3?
Given the light and conditions you rendered these wonderfully. Let's hope the strong survive!
Excellent set my friend
Karl


Thanks pal, always appreciated.

Re #3 - no, it's just a tree for all the wood enthusiasts out there.

Terrific photos of an owl in some trouble. I hope predators are kept away until the fledgling can actually fly. That last shot is heart breaking.
We need daily updates!

Dave


Thanks Dave. If only I could provide daily updates. Hopefully the little fluff eventually made it to the relative safety of the surrounding trees. It certainly made many valiant efforts so fingers crossed.

What a sweet treat to see this cutie. Amazing set of something I certainly will probably never see.
