Gina Cloutier told Sudbury.com she had, for years, hoped to snap an owl. She finally got her chance recently and captured the above image of a great horned owl and her two owlets, cuddling in their nest.
“I was given a tip to where this beautiful female horned owl was and to my surprise she had two owlets in the nest. I sure would’ve loved to have been closer to her, but I kept my distance to respect her.”
