These little guys are tons of fun to take pictures of and their many poses can be comical. Catching images of them in flight is very difficult though as they tend to take off without any warning, fly low and fast and turn erratically.
On Saturday I was watching a pair of these when suddenly one took flight heading right toward me. I snapped off a couple of quick shots before it was all over. As I was shooting into the early morning sun the owl was heavily backlit but some post processing yielded what I think is a pretty cool image. Probably one of my favorite pics from this past weekend.
