"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind... We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith." -- Margaret D. Nadauld

They're Baaaack

We finally found the owls!! We were so excited!

They aren't living in the same tree they lived in last year, but they're still fairly close. I was so happy we found them before the baby (we can only find one this year) flies away!


Isn't this creepy? It was getting a little dark, so I turned the flash on. Yes. I could use the red-eye editor and get rid of them, but why would I?


The baby -- Look at its eyes!!

All last summer, when I was trying to take the owl's pictures, its eyes were always open. This is the first time I've seen it sleep!


I think these are the same adult owls as last year. Great Horned Owls mate for life and they tend to come back to the same nesting area every year. Since they seem to be permanent members of the neighborhood, I think we should name them. What do you think?

Sounds like a "Princess Bride" night to figure out names for the owls. I personally think the baby needs to be "Peanut". He's so cute.

I love that they came back! Great photos too, red eyes and all.

So cool that they came back. I would stink at trying to come up with names. If I think of anything, I'll come back.

Cool!! Excellent photography with the red-devil eyes.

I totally thought you'd Photoshopped those eyes to be red. Pretty crazy that you didn't. I've never been able to fix animal red-eye...make a copy of the pic and see if you can and let me know.
