Managed to get to Reifel first thing this morning. Being there before the crowds has its rewards as I was greeted by this at the foot of the east dyke trail.
A Great Horned Owl juvenile.
While still not as clean a shot as I would like,
… it was not as obstructed as the last one I saw and photographed.
A little further along on the Alaksen National Wildlife Area side of the trail,
… was a Coyote family.
Staying under the trees mostly while they played,
… they would make the odd dash out into the open. It was fun being able to watch this family group interact before they eventually moved on.
