As long as this swamp has water, it can dry, a patience Owl will catch prey here. They know it and just sit and wait.
This adult knew I was there. No place to hide really. I am not crawling into the surrounding bamboo.
I got the ‘look’ once in a while.
Eventually I believe he was successful, after dropping down I lost sight. I did not see any young but I know they are in the trees somewhere watching.
Ellen is usually the one following the Owls while I am out in a rookery. I know she will catch the shots of the young ones soon.
