Guarding the Nest

This mama owl chose this rotting dead tree to be the nest for her babies. Seems like the perfect shelter. She did not like us taking pictures of her at first. She flew off a couple of times, but quickly returned to guard her nest of eggs. After a while, she got used to our cameras clicking away. The last bits of rain for the day were still falling when my friend and I were taking these shots so we had to carefully protect our cameras with large plastic zip lock bags. But it was worth the effort. This beautiful creature settled in and let us shoot away to our heart’s content.
