My family abandoned me yesterday evening (no Taylor Swift movie for me!) so I headed out to one of my favorite local open spaces for some fresh air and a walk. The fall foliage wasn’t quite ready for prime time so I decided to see if I could find one of my old friends. It probably would have escaped unnoticed but it made the mistake of hopping to a different branch. That, of course, did not disappoint me and it put itself right out in a near perfect spot.
The late afternoon light shining through the leaves looked awesome with one spot right on one of the owl’s eyes. The image also gives you a nice look at the business end (talons) of the owl that you would certainly not want to be on the wrong side of.
