Whooo loves Owls?

Utah Barn Owl in flightUtah Barn Owl in flight

I do! I do!

There is something I find utterly appealing and mesmerizing when I see a Barn Owl in flight like this one as it flew past me last winter at Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area. I love the Barn Owl’s deep-set, dark and mysterious eyes, the silent way that they glide past, their monkey like face plus their beautiful colors and patterns.

Yes, I do love owls and I am ecstatic every time I photograph them, I can not resist them.

And why should I?

About Mia McPherson

I am a nature lover, wildlife watcher and a bird photographer. I first become serious about bird photography when I moved to Florida in 2004 and it wasn’t long before I was hooked (addicted is more like it). My move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and photographing birds. My approach is to photograph the birds without disturbing their natural behavior. I don't bait, use set ups or call them in. I use Nikon gear and has multiple camera bodies and lenses.

    Hi! I love Owls also! I was trout fishing in a very small stream and did not see the baby Owl in the bushes until its mother flew into my head and raked me good. I looked up and saw the little Grey ball of fur! I ran and mom still chased me for a ways! My hair still parts in the top of my head! She really hit me hard!
    I know I should not but I hoot at the 3 that talk at nite where I live and they answer me.
    Thanks for the great photo’s of everything sogreat!

  4. ohhh, this owl is beautifull in this attitude, and the bokeh is excellent, great job mia =)))

  5. Found on every continent except Antarctica, this is Steve Chringren’s (World of Flight birdshow at Hogle Zoo) favorite owl for its beauty. His young daughter once described its color as a perfectly toasted marshmellow, he says after the owl has flown over the audience. I do miss those birdshows. Nice image of a wild one, Mia.

  6. Agreed. It’s one of the birds that every time I see it in person, I gasp and say “It’s so BEAUtiful!” Just say yes. =)
