There is an old Irish saying about having the wind at your back and the sun in your face. Apparently this Great Horned Owl prefers it the other way.
A friend clued me in on a local spot in Thornton, Colorado where a couple of these awesome birds have been hanging out so I had to check them out this afternoon. This one never even opened an eye while the other paid me little more than a cursory glance.
