It has been a while since I have captured a good image of one of these guys so I was very happy to have found this one thanks to a friend pointing it out. It was quite content to sit from its perch high in a cottonwood tree and watch me as I snapped my pictures. The fall colors behind it really made for a pleasing capture and complemented the owl’s bright yellow eyes.
Taken at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge near Denver, Colorado.
