You might wonder why I think it is tough being a bird photographer when it comes to Burrowing Owls.
It isn’t because I get up so early to photograph them.
It isn’t because they are hard to find.
Or that I drove 90 miles to get to where the Burrowing Owls are.
It isn’t because they are particularly difficult to photograph.
And it isn’t because I have already been up nearly three and a half hours by the time I get to where the owls are.
It is tough because they are so funny that it is hard to suppress my laughter.
It is tough because I usually take a tons of images and that means…
It is tough to weed through the images…
And tough deciding which ones to keep.
When you take over seven hundred images in one sitting that takes a long time to go through them all.
But what is really tough is deciding which images to share because it is hard to get bad images of these cute desert owls. Yeah, I know. “Poor baby”. 🙂
So I figured what the heck, I’d share a Baker’s Dozen Burrowing Owl images that I created yesterday!
Life is good.
All images were taken with my Nikon D810, Nikkor 500mm VR with the 1.4x TC attached. Sorry there are no techs but there are just too many images!
