Spring ushers in buds and blooms, and in my neck of the woods, Spring brings new babies. For the past few years, Mama and Papa welcome two new owlets into their Great Horned Owl family every Spring.
The next time you wander into the woods, if you see two furry balls high on a tree, don’t pass them by.
Those furry balls could turn into two pairs of big eyes, inviting you to stay awhile. Fine, take some pictures. We love to pose.
They look cuddly as a teddy bear.
I can only imagine how those fluffy down feel to the touch. They’re nature’s babies; I can only admire from afar.
And what are they thinking, looking at us humans gathering under the tree?
Oh, humans? That’s what they are? Strange, with such huge and long noses. No? Telephoto lenses? They sure are curious and interesting creatures. Alright, let me give them a high five. That’ll make their day.
Ok… let me show off a little: here’s a wing:

Happy Mother’s Day, Mama!
