1 day fledged great horned owlet.
I have been photographing owls for a long time & this is the VERY FIRST time I have ever seen or photographed an owl on a forested floor. This little darling we think fell from his/her nest while trying to branch. This little one stayed on the forest floor (and private properties) for 2-3 days as s/he learned to hop, skip, jump & climb trees.

There will never be the adequate words in describing what it was like to watch mom and her 2 owlets in their living room window looking out at the world and directly at me.
ALWAYS IMPORTANT to keep your distance while photographing nesting owls and birds. If one spooks mom, she could leave her babies forever.
For this shot I used a Canon 7D mark II
Canon L lens 4.5/5.6 100-400mm with 1.4 converter & significantly cropped....

Get ready to have your ♥ turn into goo
Pay attention at 4:20 when owlet #2 pokes his head between mom's legs through all of those feathers before she flies away, so precious.
