Here is a Great Horned Owl posing nicely in a tree for me.
After driving for 1 1/2 hours I thought I was going to get skunked with no pictures to show for my efforts.
Finding this owl made my day.
I had to walk on ice at the edge of the road next to a ditch and barbed wire fence. The ice was loud crunching under my feet and the tree that this owl was in had a maze of small tree branches everywhere. Finding a clear shot up through the tree was a challenge against time when the owls instincts would kick in and take off.
Well, I lucked out and this owl stuck around for two of my passes under the tree.
