Last Friday afternoon, more by coincidence, I found out that the Little Owl has an other favourite place.....my neighbours declined garden house. I was sitting in the kitchen and noticed a brown bird on the roof of this garden house and assumed that this was a female Blackbird. In contrast with a normal 'Blackbird' this one did not move for a while and when I looked through my telelens I saw a Little Owl. For the variation of images I'm happy that the owl is not only sitting in the birdhouse. The new problem/challenge is a magnolia tree and a lot of branches in front of my neighbours garden house.
Yesterday, I saw the Little Owl in the birdhouse escaping the rain. This morning the owl was sitting again on the roof top of my neighbours garden house. As some of the branches were disturbing the composition I needed to create a higher position. While I was busy in my kitchen with my tripod and cans of cat food, the Little Owl did not pay any attention to me.
Finally I nailed it and no branches were in front of the Little Owls head! I climbed on a chair and made some photo's when I saw that the Little Owl became nervous.......after this photo the Little Owl was gone.......my neighbour let her two dogs out.
But, I will not complain as I realize that seeing an owl from the kitchen chair is a priviledge!
