Hooters

While on our evening walk along the river, I spied this pair of Great Horned Owls sitting high in a cottonwood.

 

The larger owl on the left (I assume the female) turned around and looked back at me before taking flight.

 

By the time she flew out of the trees where I could get a clear shot of her, she was almost over Laurie. Owls are silent in flight, so she flew over Laurie without notice.

 

I walked around the other side of where the male was perched and got a good shot of how well his feathers blend in with the cottonwood's bark.

 

He turned around to see what I was up to, and gave me a sideways glance.

 

So I moved around and got a sideways shot of him.

 

I was waiting to see if he would fly, but he was content on staying perched and looking demure.

Thanks, Janna! They seem to like the attention is some strange way.

Gorgeous owls! I imagine they were wondering about the "stalker" tracking them :)
