Male Burrowing Owl Portrait

Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, Colorado

A male burrowing owl hunts from his perch on a fence post near the natal burrow. Burrowing owls migrate from Mexico and Texas to nest and raise their young in abandoned prairie dog burrows - another reason to love prairie dogs! As I was observing this little owl, a coyote meandered too close to the natal burrow, were the young are underground - and the owl dive-bombed the coyote in the head, chasing him off. Fearless!  Athene cunicularia

The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
