A lucky encounter this past weekend. Driving to my chosen photo destination, I happen across this gorgeous great horned owl hanging out on a wire. Behind it, the waning gibbous moon was sitting bright in the sky.
The sun wasn’t up yet and light was at a premium so it was tough to get a decent exposure of the owl. Further, knowing it wasn’t likely to hang around, I didn’t have time to play around with camera settings. I quickly fired off a few shots from my truck just before the owl flew off and surprisingly, they didn’t turn out too bad.
