Simple things…

Can you see the Daddy Owl up there?  Camouflage is the name of the game with these two owls, owls in general based on how hard it usually is to see them.  Without other photographers there to point them out I would never have spotted these two.  There is a debate as to whether this is the same pair who have nested in the area in the past.  This is a different nest though, but in the same tree as the one I’ve seen in the past.  And the female spent the whole time down in the nest.  We could see that she rearranged herself a bit, but a peek out at us was the most we saw of her.  She is busy sitting on eggs, that much seems to be a given.  I’ll be back soon, hoping for more action when their chicks hatch.  I don’t quite understand how I’ve gotten so invested in watching Mother Nature in action.  Eagles and owls, and my former neighbors have promised to let me know when/if the Sandhill cranes that I used to watch out my kitchen window begin their housekeeping.  It bothers me that all of this,  the sunrises and sunsets, and nature going about her business, was going on my whole life and I failed to pay attention.  It seems that the simple things in life are all that matters at these days.  If only I would have figured that out sooner…01-31-20owl101-31-20feathers01-31-20mompeek01-31-20owl2
