Inspired by Canoncan, JonMikal and all the great nature photographers in here.. these are a few I took along side the second hole at a golf course near Hamilton, Ont. I spent about 1 1/2 hrs getting acquainted with these tiny fellows, with moderate success. I was able to get about 8 feet from them at times, but I sincerely wish I had a tripod with me., I guess my nerves are not as good as they used to be, so I will invest in some equipment soon. I also caught a shot of a racoon in a tree near bye here, sleeping deeply!! But its not worth of this forum. Some day, I will find an Owl in the wild like Canoncan does, and life will be complete!!
