Black Hills photographer captures wildlife in Hot Springs, SD
Joe Rainboth of Black Hills State University, regularly posts his professional photos on the Black Hills Facebook page.

Here he captured a pair of burrowing owls.

"Happened upon this pair of Burrowing Owls today, southwest of Hot Springs South Dakota," he wrote. "Knew they lived out here, but had never gotten to see them until now. Creepy looking little things."

The Black Hills are are a small, isolated mountain range which rises from the Great Plains in western South Dakota and extends into Wyoming. Because of its dark appearance from a distance as a result of the grouping of trees, the Lakota called the area "Paha Sapa," which translates as "Black Hills." It is a popular subject for photo enthusiasts.
