Description

I have been photographing this family of Burrowing Owls for a couple of years, so the parents are very tolerant of my presence. They go about their daily routines — hunting, feeding and grooming the chicks — totally oblivious of my presence. On this day, the sun had just peaked above a distant mountain and bathed the owls in glorious warm red glow. The rising sun in the chick’s eyes promised a new dawn and a new life for the family.
