Barn Owl

I went on a bird migration trip to Point Reyes north of San Francisco this past weekend. We saw an incredible number of migrating birds, including this barn owl that was resting in a tree during the day. We found five barn owls in total and they're quite hard to see, but lucked out with this one through the many branches. A great assist to my D300's incredible focusing ability. Note the out-of-focus branches in the foreground. The spot focusing was spot on!
