Elf Owls of the Sonoran Desert

I have been photographing elf owls for the past 10 years. Elf Owls are only resident to Arizona during the summers and they are the smallest or next to the smallest owl in the world. They are great fun but until this year I have been unable to get the best photos of them carrying food to their young. Finally, this spring, I was able to complete the task and I hope you enjoy the images.
