Screech Owlet landing in Fern Lake. I was only able to capture one late afternoon of branching baby owls at this nest before they moved higher into the grand oaks. I feel especially privileged to witness the fledging of several screech owl nests this year. Side lit by the light bouncing off a small stream of water, beamer was use to balance the shadow.
