A Great Horned Owl, Nearly Full Moon, and Hummingbird

I was sitting outside yesterday evening, and first saw a bunny, and then a grown jackrabbit, among the lavender near the house. Very unusual to see rabbits this close by, as they usually stay out in the yard.

Then one rabbit ran down by the side of the pool, and an owl swooped in for dinner, a wingspan of about four feet, and missed. The owl then retired to a snag on the hillside, where I took her picture in the dim light.

The Moon rose later, nearly full, and far less red once high in the sky.

This morning, the hummingbird was feeding in the crepe myrtle and bottle-brush, so I approached, and quietly began taking pictures.

Please enjoy!
