Something I have noted now that I am up in the country, is the dead owls and hawks this fall. My guess is they are less used to roads, as there are much less and the roads travelled are higher speed, a lot of milk trucks and semi’s. I have found 3 dead Barred Owls and a dead Red-Tail Hawk. Previously when I have found them I have buried them, but others in the past commented letting nature take it’s course might be better, so I have taken time with the animal to see it more closely, and using my sweater as a background, I wanted to try and capture some good from their death. Here are a few shots of feathers taken a while back – I just haven’t gotten around to posting it. I wish the photos were better, and I have tweaked the settings a little to show more detail.
*I have posted this before but as a reminder, possessing feathers or birds that are migratory is illegal and subject to fine.
