Great shot, Christine! Hopefully these youngsters are able to overcome the challenges.

Outstanding shot! After enlarging the photo to full screen it is stunning, as are most of your photos. I love the earlier Trumpeter Swan photo too. It's a shame we miss so many excellent photos because they look so blurry on the main page.

I am surprised that happens, especially when I take care not to post blurry shots

Beautiful shot, Christine, and heart wrenching story. I'm sure we all wish these guys and their fellow forest dwellers well.

hoping the winds keep them safe!

Description
After I took this shot of the beautiful 3 Great Grey Owlets the area was evacuated because of the fires burning in the interior of BC. I fear for the young owls as they are still too young to fly long distances or even far up a tree. The fires so far have been redirected by the winds away from this family but the ground below them is tinder dry of wood debris so they could easily be lost. Every day the fires do not reach them they grow stronger, I only hope they survive.
