Great Horned Owlet prematurely grounded from 50 feet up (possibly from high winds). The young owl did successfully make it up and into a smaller eucalyptus tree in good time right before dark. 2-May-2013.

    Recording the natural history of wildlife is my primary focus. Photographing wildlife in its most natural state requires getting to know the animals in a manner where you become a friend and ally, as well as a protector and non-threatening observer.

    Enjoy the photos and please remember to support and protect habitat wherever you can. For it's the trees, shrubs, waterways, oceans and open areas that provide the necessary habitat that sustains mankind and the wonderful wildlife around us.
