At dusk tonight, Daddy Owl was sitting under the moon. The moon is almost full at 93.9%. The full moon is on Wednesday. He was very patient with me getting very close, kneeling under him on the levee to get the moon circled around his head. At first, I was inside the minimum focus range of 11 feet for the Bazooka, so I have to scoot back a little.

I bet that took some sorting to get those so perfect, Tim. Wonderful efforts!
How the moon commandingly watches over the owl eerily wonderful.
You handled both with great care in their interplay.
Although the moon is such a glorious pearl set in the heavens, you do justice to the owl as well.
Great lens and photo work.
Owls and moons are magical. Daddy Owl did a great job posing. Thanks, abvr.
Lol, thats true. He was the most difficult of the two. The moon remains constant.
I’m glad he gave you a show.
You most welcome.
Enjoy your valentine 💝
Now that is a great composition with the moon and the owl – still shocked it is that accommodating for you – especially with a formidable weapon aimed directly at it!
He’s not intimidated by no stinking bazooka. He knows he has a pair of formidable weapons on his feet. Thanks, Brian.
You guys are officially pals now. Well done, sir!
Hahaha! Thanks, Dale. It’s a “browlmance!”
You’re in ca-hoo-hoots!
Hahaha! I love your wit. Excellent. He and Mama Owl are a lovely pair of hooters.
😉 and you? You’ve been allowed in… Ateast on the fringe!
I’m always on the fringe.
I don’t doubt it!
I had the pleasure of enjoying the moon and the skies during a sunset walk. No owls though. Your photos are lovely.
Wow. They are gorgeous pictures ❤️🦉
Thanks, Gabriela. I knew you would like them.
My pleasure. I love them. You outdid yourself. I rarely saw such stunning pictures .
Daddy Owl was such a willing subject.
Daddy Owl is a gorgeous creature, he really loves the limelight, the moonlight , and the spotlight.
You are absolutely right, Holly. Thanks,
Happy Valentines Day!
Happy Valentine’s Day. I hope yours is lovely.
Thank you! Your’s too, I hope it’s the best!
Well said, Holly. Daddy Owl know how position himself for the camera. I am amazed by Tim’s remarkable ability to talk with owls.
Daddy owl has flown over to a branch close to me while I was walking on the levee yesterday and today. I was only 12 to 15 feet from him. He posed nicely.
WOW – that must have been a fabulous moment. I have often wondered if owls become attached to humans, much like crows and ravens.
I know they do if they are rescued, but I’m not sure there is much attachment in this case.
Hi Rebecca ❤️Timothy relates to all creatures of the wild and they to him.
It’s my wild side.
Haha, thank heavens for it!
Fabulous, Tim. The shots with the moon behind Daddy Owl = Amazing. We are clear skies right now. Hoping they stay that way for the full moon this week.
It’s the Snow Moon for February. Thanks, Jeff.

Wonderful catches of the moon and Daddy.
Wow Timothy.. these are amazing.. Maybe he thinks you’re his daddy! pretty soon you’ll be able to pet him! 🤗💖🤣
I don’t think our browlmance with ever get to the petting level. Thanks, Cindy.
hahahahaha, I think you’re right.. he’s sooooo darn cute.. pleasure! 💖💖
Hey Timothy! It’s nice to see your pictures again. It’s Linda (AKA SpiritualFantasia), and I hope you are doing well! This isn’t really my personal blog website, just a website I built for a nonprofit. Anyways, I just I hope you are doing really well and that life is treating you good!
Hi Linda. We are well. It’s been cold but it’s starting to warm up a bit. How are you?
Sweet! So I’m sure the animals coming around you guys are changing with the seasons as well. I’m doing really well! Got baptized in Jan, finishing up my uni studies as well. Thanks for asking!
Were you dunked or sprinkled for your baptism? Baptize means to dunk. I’m happy to hear you are doing well.
Dunked at home! Haha.
You got some great shots there. It took a bit of work to get that moon positioned right. And love the image with the moon, cinnamon hills, and Resa’s tree. 🙂
My positioning to get the moon behind Daddy Owl’s head was slightly contortionist. The Sandias turn pink most evenings, thus their name, which means watermelon in Spanish. Them there hills are 11,000 feet above sea level. Resa’s tree is at 5,000 feet. Thanks, D.
LOL. I could imagine the effort. Beautiful shots.
Daddy owl with the moon is stunning. It’s a perfect crown for him! (Have they mated? Is there nest building going on?)
Can’t beat my tree! Egads… of course I stole the pic.
Hapy you can use it. Thanks, Resa.
You take the most beautiful photos of Resa’s tree, Tim.
Thanks, Rebecca. Resa’s tree is a great model.
And you are a fabulous photographer.
