Now this is one ticked-off Long-Eared Owl!
OK, he’s actually a fledgling (that’s why he doesn’t have the trade-mark “long ears” - actually tufts that look like ears) just yet.
We found him and, later, two of his siblings one afternoon at Wind Cave National Park.
My son Grant was working on a Jr. Ranger Program and we needed to take a hike though a prairie grassland to answer a series of questions in his packet. On the way, you cut through a small group of mixed trees and we came upon a maintenance worker who asked if we wanted to see a fledgling owl.
So, he pointed out the first owl (not this guy), and I shot and shot. Then, (with the help of some other hikers), we found two more – and this cool guy is one of those.
He was actually at the top of a hill near a picnic area. I went to the top and was able to get eye-level with him. Then Grant walked up behind me to get a better look – and the owl didn’t seem to like it too much, resulting in the photo you see above.
PS – And yes, Grant did get his Jr. Ranger badge
About Our Prints....
We currently sell both individual prints and completely framed and ready-to-hang prints. Our framed prints are professionally matted, mounted and framed.
Here's a sample of our basic mat and frame:
Framed prints purchased though us are generally a better deal than taking a loose print to your local frame shop since we have a pretty significant discount that we pass along to you. When you receive your print in the mail, it's ready to hang and even comes with the hardware for doing so.
Please note that if you'd like another type of print (canvas for example) or another frame style, we can certainly accommodate you, just use the contact us page and we'll customize the artwork to make it perfect for your home.
Our framed prints are guaranteed for as long as you own them against wear, fading, or deterioration. Loose prints are also guaranteed for as long as you own them provided you have them framed under glass using archival materials. We want you to LOVE your prints, so we offer a refund as long as the print or framed print is returned in like new condition within 30 days.
All prints are signed in one of the lower corners (usually the right hand corner).
Delivery time varies and depends on a number of factors, but we always strive to get your prints delivered to you as quickly as possible. I personally inspect each and every piece before it leaves our building. If I'm out of town taking more photos, it can cause a delay, but a good rule of thumb is that a loose print will ship within 2 weeks and a framed print within 3 weeks. That time is significantly shorter if I'm in town at the time the order is placed. If you need a print done by a certain date, you can contact me and I'll be happy to give you an estimated delivery date.
We are now offering quantity discounts if you are interested in two or more pieces. Simply contact me with the sizes and names of the images you are interested in and I will be happy to get you a quote. The more pieces you order, the better the discount.
Thanks for your interest!
