More Newborn's!

Ellie Mae finally decided to have her calf...another lil' bull calf.



He's not nearly as cute or photogenic as the lil' brown calf. But what he lacks in cuteness, he makes up for in spunk! He is a feisty lil' guy...could hardly stand and he was trying to run 'n buck! He fell down numerous times, and he just kept gettin' back up and doin' it all over again!




But the lil' guy sure got the milk thing down quickly! He's going to need all the nourishment he can get with his energy!




OK...he's cute in his own way...and his momma loves him...that's what counts!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The owls have been busy too...nesting...



See the round hole in the rock cliff just above the "g"?


Here's a closer look...



And a lil' closer...



This is momma owl, and it's the first time I've seen her sitting at the edge of the hole. So, I think the eggs have hatched! We'll be watching for the lil' ones!

That is a great photo of the rock face, and you need a keen eye to spot the owl. The little black calf is cute too!
I love your blog format, where did you find it?

Shirley said...

OK, I found in the comments on your other post the answer to my question.

Love the new layout!

Thanks for sharing such great pictures. How on earth did you ever see that owl?

The lil guy is cute and I had a hard time finding the owl until you gave us a hint. I got it then.

You're welcome GunDiva...but this pair of Great Horned Owls have lived here longer than we have...they came with the place so to speak! It took me until the second year we were here to find their nesting spot (when I saw one of the fledglings fall from the nest). They nest in the same spot every year. Last year they had 5 young ones...we'll see what they come up with this year!

I love your owl shots! The cat/dog series is great as well!

Cute little guy! I think black critters are always harder to capture than other colors.
