Owlet in a Downpour

A few years back I got to spend an entire morning with this Great Horned Owlet. The forecast was for some rain and I came prepared with the rain sleeve. I was pretty happy when it started pouring so I could get something a little different with this cute owlet in the heavy rain which really made for a lush spring look.

Nature photography has become a very passionate hobby of mine and whenever I get a chance I love to get outside and enjoy being outdoors. I am also the co-owner of KGM Expressions, a wedding and portrait photography business, with my wife Kim. This is how we make our living and I love that we get to do that together.
