His & Her Barred Owls
Mr. Owl found a mate. I've been following this barred owl for about a year now when I head out to Big Cypress. To my surprise, he found a mate. Perhaps there is a possibility of some baby owls in Big Cypress this year. Only time will tell.
This was taken 15 minutes after sundown and I used flash as main light again to get 3d effect and sharper image.
