I've never seen an owl in daylight, apart from in a bird sanctuary. How delightful!

Gosh, they look paradise to me! How beautiful! I share your passion for nature Ma'am Eileen!

Is the Owl real? Isn't she gorgeous if she is a she?

If next time, you get her Macro, may I have the permission to copy? Just because I don't think I have ever seen an Owl in real!

I have a retired Navy Admiral friend who collects Owl! I mean the miniature collectibles if you know what I mean.

Krista said...

Great shots! I love the duck reflections! And owls are always a pleasure aren't they? I have seen a few over the years but oddly enough, never photographed one. YET! :o)

I am replying since a few are remarking at my seeing owls in the daylight. Every time I have seen an owl, it has been in the daylight. We were lucky at this time, there was a family we actually saw three owls. One adult and two juveniles. I heard their cries for food and I knew they were closeby. But the juvies stayed hidden in the leaves of the trees. We did see both of the juvies flying a few times. They are so cute!

Very nice! I'm playing catchup, and also liked your shots of the Cranberry Glades and Skyline Drive. You always have such a nice variety of photos.

Spiderdama said...

Beautiful photos! Great and peaceful landscape :-)

SquirrelQueen said...

What a beautiful nature center, I would love to walk through. Great photo of the owl. I hear them sometimes during the day but they stay in the taller trees so I can't see them.

Like you Eileen, the only time I have seen an owl is during the day or late evening.
