[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, a photo from my winter 2013 archives,
I am doing it my 2016 Valentine's Day TN photo.

1/1600s f/7.1 ISO1000 50mm (35mm eq:75mm).


« Like other owls, the Great Grays do not build their own nests.
They prefer to take over the abandoned nests of other large
birds or even squirrels. Mating takes place in February and March.
Two to five white eggs are laid per clutch, and each one is laid
a day or two apart. The female does all of the incubating and
the male does all of the hunting. Both will defend the nest
if they feel threatened, even defending against animals
as large as black bears! »
