What Are You Looking At?

Species: Great Horned Owl and Owlets | Location: Ephrata, PA, United States of America

A great horned owl mother and her young owlets in the tree. I have gone to this tree for four years in a row and she has had babies every year. She has had three, two, one, and two in those years. Some have survived, some haven't. I go to this nest from the time mom claims the nest in early February to mid-April when the young ones fledge. I live just 15 minutes away, so I can be here often as I am disabled and use a power chair. Fortunately this nest is very accessible. There is a creek between the photographers and the nest so they don't feel threatened.

About The Photographer

Cropped 19859105 1363312523706322 666339101 o  2

I have done photography for 40 years, off and on. I never really combined my love of nature and my love of photography until a number of years ago. The last 6 years I got more serious about it and have become addicted to bird photography. But I love all nature and will attempt to take a picture of anything I come across. I became disabled 12 years ago and photography helped me to stop feeling sorry for myself and stop looking at all I can not do, and go do what I still can do. Living on disability makes travel and buying equipment hard to do. But I am blessed beyond my means with the equipment I have, thanks to some very generous people.
