I take the ‘back road’ to get to my bank. On this road there is an empty lot that is home to three Burrowing Owl nests.
The city puts stakes around the dens to guard them and perches for them to sit on, since they are a protected species. They are a nocturnal animal, although they do come out of their burrows during the day (to be sociable I’m sure!)
Since getting my new camera, whenever I go to the bank I bring it with me. Thinking I could get some good shots and learn how to use the telephoto ‘lens’.
But every time I would drive by they must have been having indoor meetings.
I took 78 shots.
Out of those 78 about 30 were in focus! LOL
I tried all sorts of different settings.
My mistake was not making notations, so now I don’t know what setting I was on when I got the good shots! Duh!
Aren’t they cute?
|Aw jeez, not another one with a camera!|
|What the hell are YOU looking at?|
|Is she done yet?|
|Wait, I wasn't ready!|
|Here I am posing majestically for your stupid picture!|
|So take the damn picture already!|
