Let’s face it some butt shots aren’t very pretty but some can be awfully darned cute!

I’ve never been able to think of a great caption for this Burrowing Owl (Athene cunicularia) image, if anyone has an idea for one, please leave it in your comment.

The juvenile had been preening and gave this wonderful pose, oh how I wish it had been facing me!Even thoughI didn’t have eye contact from the owl I simply couldn’t delete this file, it is too funny.

Butt Shot! – Nikon D200, f7.1, 1/640, ISO 250, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC at 400mm, natural light, not baited
