A little bit of action from this awesome raptor. I took these pics some time ago but forgot to ever share them so here you go!
After work I had gone for a hike and came across this owl in a densely wooded area. It gave me some nice poses and was quite comfortable with me being there.
However, when someone else came walking through, it decided it had enough of the attention. The owl quickly turned and launched, heading off for a more private spot.
These guys rarely give you a chance to get a flight shot so I was pretty danged happy to get them. The last shot in the sequence I really like as the backlighting does a nice job on its wings.
