We have been hearing a pair of great horned owls in our neighborhood for weeks. Only twice have I gotten a shadowy glimpse of them.
Recently, leaving the house for an early morning photo drive I spotted an owl perfectly perched on the corner of a house up the street. Finally my chance and I was excited!
I kept going a ways so as not to scare it off, quietly turned around, unpacked my camera and got ready to capture pics of this awesome bird. Once I had a clear view, I aimed, focused and fired off a bunch of shots. Umm. Yeah. Not quite what I was thinking it was. 😀
