Daily Photos (Updated)

Finally, a photo of the Great Horned owlets with a parent in the nest for perspective.

Update: Haha. I'm sitting here drinking a beer and looking at my website and I looked at this photo again and I was like....Holy Sh1t, Batman...there's three baby owls in this photo. Apparently, their average clutch size is 2.3 owlets. So, in this case, we got 3. Haha. Cracks me up. I've been shooting these owlets for some time, and I suspected that there might be more than two, as, if you go back and look at some of the older photos, I did notice shapes that were hard to explain. But this is classic. Three baby owlets with a parent and all four of them looking into the frame. Luck counts. I'll take it.

The House Wren has laid yet another egg for a total of eight. She's been laying an egg a day now for as long as I can remember.

Jennifer checking one of the nests. We take the four wheeler because it's the easiest way to gain access to the nests. It's basically a rolling ladder. We just stand up on the game rack on the front.

Photos of the flowers at the local country club. No clue what they are. Update: Chick Voice points out that these are Lupines. Thanks CV.

Have been enjoying the bird photos a lot.

The tall flowers are lupines and the pink is a columbine. (there are many varieties in all colors, besides the well know blue and white.)

As always, love your photography.

Well done, Chick Voice. Glad to hear from you. I knew that the Columbine looked familiar, but I didn't realize they came in different colors. Lupines....had no clue on this one. Reminds me of the Python skit though:
