The Great Horned Owl above was seen this evening just before dark... The almost full May moon was rising up in the sky and perhaps added a hint of glow, but the images were shot at high ISO and super slow shutter speeds. None the less, I'll take what I can get when an Owl shows up (This one has at least 1 baby which made sharp rasping calls to let the parent know where it was and that it was hungry.) I observed this beautiful bird silently flying through the trees in search of prey, but other than these 2 locations for a brief time, only fleeting glimpses.
* Thank you very much to the people who have the acreage where these birds live and for the invitation! ***

Summer 2023.. I just received notice that my blog has been awarded a distinction of being one of the top 10 photography blogs in Canada.
