Synchronized swimming - Mallard style
On the way out, I paid a quick visit to see if the Screech Owl was at home. He wasn't out when I first arrived, but it soon it poked its head out. Unfortunately the sun was already below the horizon and only a very high ISO and slow shutter speed would allow for these photos. Unfortunately they are a bit noisy / grainy as a result. The is the first time, I've caught this owl with its eyes open. Unfortunately the light disappeared and I had to run before I could see him fly.
An animal chirping caught its attention
Doesn't like having its photo taken
