We were lucky enough to witness a short-eared owl while on the island of Genovesa, Galapagos islands, and had an opportunity to be within short range of this amazing creature. This was the only image I was able to capture before flying away, but take notice of the storm petrel in his grasp. The storm petrel is the most common food source for the short-eared owl in the Galapagos.
