Why Did The Short Eared Owl Cross The Road?

It didn't, so I got out and took some pictures!










A young 'un with not much sense yet. The parents and one other young one were close by. I spotted it on the way up the road so turned round and came back, leaned out the window and took some lovely shots of the wing mirror and nearly rolled into the ditch before I thought of applying the handbrake :lol: When I got out it just sat there in the headlights, I could have picked it up.

They are fantastic shots!

Decades ago I was working at a mine in Ayrshire; at the back of the workshop were some transformers/switch gear which were always pumping out heat and directly above on the roof beams a pair of Short Eared Owls roosted ........ it was a weird experience to see them sweeping in and out above the dozers and dumptrucks!
Sadly my 7' 5 weight that killed fascists is deceased!
