Adult Burrowing Owl in flightAdult Burrowing Owl in flight – D200, f6.3, 1/1500, ISO 400, +0.7 EV, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC at 400mm, natural light, not baited

A while back I wrote about D.O.T.S. (dreaming of the sun) and D.W.B. (dreary weather blues) and although there has been a few windows of sunshine around the past week the forecast is once again dreary for days. I thought posting an adult Burrowing Owl in flight taken during the summer of 2011 on Antelope Island might help to brighten my spirits as I dream of the sun again.

Forecast for this weekForecast for this week

The graphic above is the forecast for my area this week, IF we are lucky the sun will shine next Monday although experience tells me this forecast is subject to change. Right now the “Pineapple Express” is dumping plenty of moisture on Utah and the surrounding states. We need the snow and we need the rain so I really shouldn’t complain but I wish we’d have a full day of sunshine in between those gray days.

Grumble, grumble.

Back to dreaming of the sun.
