I took the photograph first thing this morning of a Great Horned Owl and her chick. Baby owls are, not to be rude, ugly! Certainly this is a face that only a mother could love. I took this image on Coal Creek near Lafayette. The chicks grow up fast and I will be taking more photos of the pair before I leave on a road trip to Alaska. Within a month or so the chick will be on its own and I won’t see the mom any more. That is until next year when she hopefully goes back to the same nest.
