Took this the other day on a walk in my neighborhood. Thankfully I'm a bit larger than what is usually on this guys menu.

National Trails Day

Got this at a HawkQuest demonstration in Arvada. I have better, but this really appeals to me and I haven't quite figured out why. I think its because of the eye; being able to see the incredible curvature of the outer layer. 

This is an Eurasian Eagle Owl (EEO). They are not native to Colorado and I believe this one was originally hatched at a zoo in the midwest. Similar to GHO's, one difference is that big, beautiful orange eye (GHO eyes are yellow). They have the largest wingspan of any owl species, going as wide as 6.5ft/2m. Similar diets, the EEO ahs also been seen feeding on foxes and small deer!

If you want to see more of this guy now, visit the raptors gallery on my web page (goo.gl/zfACk4). Or you can wait until I get more pics loaded!

Peek-A-Boo

I could hear the hoots, but it was at least a half hour before finding him about 35-40ft off the ground in the hollow trunk of an otherwise healthy tree. Even then, if I hadn't been looking in the exact right spot and at the exact time he blinked, I probably would have missed him.

Tasty!

Not sure if this guy was hungry or hyperactive, but he would not sit still. Very difficult getting a decent bg on him because the explorer in him had to be satisfied. He was leashed, so I challenged myself to get a shot without the harness, which made it more difficult. Almost got there, but I think what is showing is easily lost in the grass. The question is how many of you even noticed the harness before I mentioned it?

Anyone Have A Comb?

Got this beautiful #goldeneagle  along with the Eurasian Eagle Owl I posted last week. Beautiful animal, although he had a little hat hair going on from the hood being used to keep him calm between displays!

Fanboy-ing

Some young adult was trying to take a portrait of +Rick Sammon posing with his incredible Camargue Horse Portrait image when this old, fat guy jumped in at the last second!

It was a true pleasure meeting Rick. I identify with much of what he says about photography, how he shoots and how he processes his images.

I only wish I had the whereabouts to actually talk to him about photography while I had the chance.

I might be a little confused. It's been a couple of days and I really wasn't paying that much attention to him on the B stage. 

I didn't see any gorilla's walking around or I would have said something to you, too. ;)

When turtles dream, IF they dream, then why not dream big, right? As soon as I saw this painted turtle, I thought it looked like he was simply waiting for the countdown to end. And how awesome would it be if something as slow and deliberate as a turtle could launch like a rocket?
