This tribute to February, the Valentine month of love, was inspired by an incredible event in nature to witness, much less photograph the pairing of two owls! Although I photographed this pair of Ferruginous Pygmy-Owls in early March in the Yucatan, who can say they didn’t start their coupling in February? In the peninsula these common owls breed January to July. (While the female incubates two to four eggs, the male gathers food for her. Both adults feed the owlets.) I was grateful for this opportunity to observe and not interfere in their natural behavior.
