Something ridiculously cute to help you on hump-day.

And then this happened in the backyard.
This is an adolescent male Great Horned Owl.
On the right is his sister.
Aw man, she gives him a peck on the cheek.
He seems rather nonplussed.
Or. . . is he telling her he doesn't want girl germs.
He skulks away.
She's sorry, cuz they are besties afterall.
He's already forgotten about it and decides to investigate what a leaf tastes like.
Apparently, not very good.
Time to go. Follow the leader!
Wait for me!

Note: This all really happened in my backyard on Monday afternoon right before the storm. I feel super lucky to have spied these kooky adolescents. For more info on raptors in Montana check out The Montana Raptor Conservation Center at http://www.montanaraptor.org/ .
