An intense glare from a northern pygmy owl, for Superb-Owl-Sunday 😀 I saw this pun earlier in the day and couldn’t resist contributing an owl picture of my own.
I was on my way back down from the top of Hollyburn when I heard a nuthatch in a nearby tree. I stopped and readied the camera only to be distracted by movement. I caught a fleeting glimpse of a thrush-sized ball of feathers as it landed a few metres up the trail. I raised the camera, fired off two shots, and then it flew off again.
