Over the last few months, I have been following the progress of a burrowing owl family - 6 owlets + 2 parents. I can't believe how fast they grow up. This image was taken when they were about 6-8 weeks old and beginning to fledge to nearby trees.
Now about 3-4 months after I first saw them peeking out of their burrowed nest, I was asked it I wanted to go and check on them and I quickly said "no", for I wanted to remember them they way that they were. :-)
