Just a few of photos

There was one real highlight this morning!


BARN OWL (74)
 I was really excited to find this Barn Owl this morning a bird that only seems to appear here once a year! It would have been nice to have better light but seeing it was great getting any photos was a bonus for me :-)
Yellowhammer for something different
Dad had 4 COOTS this morning!!

oh I love the yellow bird...we don't have a yellowhammer here. Nice captures of the Barn Owl...so difficult to get a shot of them and where is the light when you need it....as soon as the sun sees my camera it is gone!
