Great Horned Owl on alert

I don’t expect this owl and its mate get many visitors. I was driving a rural back-country road and passing by a thick stand of trees with the rising sun directly behind it. Something caught my eye, something looking out of place among the silhouetted, tangled branches.

I hopped out and worked my way to the other side, putting the sun at my back and was pleasantly surprised to find the owl pair hiding out. Given how rural the area is, I don’t expect they really expected or appreciated the impromptu photo session. I grabbed a couple quick captures and left them to their solitude.
