I love this one! I’m sure I’ve seen this photo circulating around on the web. Don’t know how as all Moms pictures were just on her photography page.
moms comment: the parent owl atop the nest tree. The parent flew in with some food for the babies just as we were leaving, so captured a few shots as she landed atop the nest tree. In the original, you can see its eyes glowing red. Not sure if it will show up in compressed version here.
There was one baby in the nest, but it had been out, flying back just as dusk was falling.
