Great Horned Owl Yawn

A Great Horned Owl slowly wakes up for a night of hunting. I came across this beautiful owl in late afternoon light and was privileged enough to observe it yawning a stretching on a low perch. Photographed on Petrie Island, Ottawa, Ontario. Canon 7D, 400mm f5.6L, USM, tripod.
