the owl flies, finally.

we went back around dusk to see if they would finally leave their tree to go hunting.. At about 6 o'clock they took off, separately. At that point, the only shots I could get were silhouettes as the larger one flew off into the dusk. This is a collage of shots of him flying directly away. I was surprised by how streamlined and aerodynamic the owls are in flight. Sitting in their trees they look like giant pillows, with big sharp claws.
