This shot of a Female Burrowing Owl was taken in Othello Washington, 06/15/2013. This is the 6th image in a series of 8 shots for the landing sequence on a perch near her den (They nest in abandoned animal dens). Her eyes are not closed, she's just focusing on the landing! Its a bit soft, but I love the shot!
