Over the holidays, I rented a longer lens (Nikon 500mm f/5.6) for shooting topside while visiting family in Wyoming, near where I grew up. I lived in Wyoming long before I really got into photography so it was fun to shoot common subjects.

I also did a mad dash out to the Salton Sea in hopes of finding burrowing owls, and hit the jackpot and found a very cooperative subject.

An an assortment of what found around Wyoming…

A male and female great horned owl couple!

And a couple things from back home in California…
