I realized that I had not shared very many of my wildlife photos with you from earlier this year, when we went down to Disneyland, Joshua Tree NP, and the Salton Sea. This little burrowing owl we found at the visitor center at the Sony Bono Salton Sea Wildlife Refuge. The lady at the visitor center showed us where it was. Would she have been so willing to do this if we did not have two cute kids with us? I think not. She told us not to cross the ditch to get too close to the owl (which obviously makes sense), so I sat back on the side of the road with my big lens and fired away. The owl was content to sit there and watch all the commotion passing by from his little man-made house.
