One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2017—The Look

Sanibel Island is home to lots of burrowing owls.  We found this owl in a protected corner of a popular community park in the middle of a neighborhood of single family homes.  After we photographed this owl, holding vigil near its burrow, we were told by residents that quite a few owls lived in front yards of homes.  Indeed, as we drove away, just a few houses down the street we saw another owl holding forth near its burrow.  The eyes of the burrowing owl are quite expressive and I loved this look, somewhere between disdain and come hither as it squinted into the late afternoon sun.

    Amazing how they have adapted to humans moving in on their territory!
