Raindance, originally uploaded by Megan Lorenz.

Burrowing Owl
Cape Coral, Florida

In early May there hadn't been rain for weeks in Cape Coral and the temperatures were unseasonably hot. So one afternoon the sprinkler was turned on to give the grass a much needed soak.

Usually the owls would remain in the burrows during this hot part of the day or hide in the shade by the house.

Instead they all came out and acted like a bunch of lunatics. They looked very disappointed when it was turned off :-)
