Juvenile Burrowing Owl (Athene cunicularia) Portrait ~ Davis County, Utah
Nikon D200, f8, 1/250, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC at 400mm, natural light, not baited
Just a simple portrait of a juvenile Burrowing Owl taken in the soft light of dawn. Burrowing Owls are beautiful birds with lemony yellow eyes, downy soft feathers and subtle coloration. It’s hard to believe that they aren’t that much different in size from an American Robin.
