Wow - a Little Owl - excellent
They are lovely, aren't they?
Lovely but I think the chickens will be safe.
Ah yes - they are wise girls.
You are so lucky to see an Owl in the day time Sarah. We hear them but rarely see them. I think the Chickens would soon scare him off if they felt he was after their dinner ! Take care now. Marion
We are fortunate indeed. They are part of our landscape and the thrill of seeing them never diminishes.
awesome and thank you for sharing have a blessed day
Thank you Linda.
How lucky are you ? It is so special to actually see one instead of just hearing it - but I will happily settle for hearing that wonderful sound ! Oh, and the chickens look very happy too !
Funnily enough, I rarely hear them. There was a baby little owl on the farm track last week. I drew up in my car and it just sat and looked at me for a few seconds before it flew away gracefully.
Chickens can be vicious and I wouldn't be surprised if they gave the owl a run for its money. Well done on catching wildlife like this in a photo - a very tricky thing to do.
Thanks Sunil - actually the owl was there for ages, so I can't claim any credit!
I have never seen an owl closely. it's so rare here
That's a shame; they are beautiful creatures.
The chicken do not seem particularly concerned. It is a beautiful shot!
Thank you, Alain. The chickens get along well with pheasants too!
Fabulous image. I have never seen an owl during the day. I do not that some will hunt during daytime hours.I saw a little owl on the framework of the Grand-children's swing. It was dusk.....could not get close enough to get a decent image.
The first time I saw an owl during the day, it was sunbathing on a post outside the kitchen window! It was a little owl too. I suspect they don't know they're owls!
Cute caption :) Love this little owl, so rare to see them in the bright daylight. Great shot.
Thank you, Marguerite. I am very fond of little owls.
What a lucky shot! We have many owls but I never manage to get that close :)
Luck is the word! The chicken coop was only a few feet from my door and I couldn't quite believe it when I saw the owl sitting there for so long.
Speaks for itself, does it not? :)
Indeed it does!
