light-phase Great Horned Owl
There is a blog I thoroughly enjoy reading: Ecobirder which you will find in my list of favorite blogs, on the right. He is a spectacular photographer and insanely interested in dragonflies; which I admire. Ecobirder has a site worth visiting regularly…with incredible photos of birds, bears, bees, butterflies and yes, more dragonflies! I have learned more about dragons, as he
calls ‘em, than I ever imagined possible; by reading his blog.
The above bird is Samantha, and the photo…of which I only copied a small piece, is Ecobirder's. But…I have some excuses for my theft; one: this is a spectacular example of a light-phase Great Horned Owl and illustrates what I mentioned in my piece below and I just had to show ya; two: I really like the idea of ‘That’s My World Tuesday’…of which Ecobirder participated and three: this is a good excuse to share his blog with some folks who have begun following mine. Do go visit Ecobirder…which you can do by following the link at his name, anywhere in this post.
Oh…I do hope he forgives me; I only took a tiny piece!... His blog includes the photograph of the whole bird and a bunch more raptors, to boot! Go visit Ecobirder to help pay for my transgression. Please! ...and you might tell him how much I thank him for his good work! (Besides, as I mentioned, he shares some lovely information about where he lives.)
