Little owls

And after the coronavirus, finally, arrive the little owls.

It's been a long time since the last time I've seen and photographed them, so I'm very happy now, first of all, because they're still there, in their nest, but I didn't see them. Maybe they stayed hide or they were somewhere, I can't be sure, but knowing that they are fine I'm more quiet.

The session has started, as always, at night and the first pictures are quite dark:

but waiting patiently, the Sun arrives and it lights the little owl:

From this point the situation changes a bit, because they get more active, flying often from a perch to another, making me quite busy trying to take some pictures during their flight. In these two photos the little owl start flying from the same perch, but in one occasion had a prey:

  

Where finally it eats their prey:

In two occasions they scared for some grey-crows flying too close their nest, so they were really worried, and sometimes they flew away, but coming back almost soon.

  

So, after some hours with their company, I can perhaps say that the coronavirus is going away.
