Great Horned Owls


Great Horned Owl and three of her new-borns in Gilbert, Arizona. This mom set up a temporary home in a palm tree at a local golf course right next to the swimming pool. I set up my camera on a tripod with my family and some pizza. The owls didn't care so I had all the time I wanted to photograph them and get this great shot.
