Last night Nige decided we were going out looking for owls lol, well we saw a short eared owl, so Nige was happy but you need to see these pictures of what else we saw.....I had tears in my eyes they were just sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo sweet & only about 20ft away, playing & squeaking so cute!

Nige caught the owl diving looking for a mouse!

These little babies were just gorgeous!
