Long Eared Owls Posing in Valley Forge
I went back to Valley Forge where I found the owls yesterday. It was hard to find them as they are so camouflaged, but I did. There were so many branches I knew I would have to get closer to get a better angle. I also knew I could easily scare them. So I just decided to start talking very quietly and soothingly so they might relax. AND IT WORKED. It took me about an hour but I slowly worked my way down to the floor of the valley sliding down on my butt while holding my big camera up and all the time talking to the birds. They just stayed and stared. I got almost too close, but I had to get low and point the camera up or the branches would get in the way. Finally got there, took a lot of photos, thanked the wonderful owls and came home a happy camper.
