Mom & Baby

As I was out walking in the SIUE Nature Reserve I stumbled across this doe and her fawn. We watched each other for a few moments then mom had enough and they went back into the trees. It is moments like this that make getting up early and going out to shoot photos worth it.

Owlet!

Was given a tip about some baby owls over in Blackburn Park in Webster Groves. I let some friends know who live nearby and they were able to get lots of shots. Finally I was able to go over and see them for myself. This little guy is the largest of the three and was in the branch above the nest. The other two were hiding in the hollow. They are just so cute and it is wonderful to see these youngsters getting ready to fledge completely.
