This beautiful lady is Sophie. She was rescued after suffering a broken wing and unfortunately cannot fly well enough to live in the wild. Now she serves as an ambassador for a local wildlife group. Because I have plenty of Great Horned Owl pics, I didn’t spend too much time photographing her at a workshop last month but she was beautiful.
Notably was her coloring that was darker than the Great Horned Owls we have here in Colorado. This is because she is from Alaska where the owls up there tend to have darker plumage that works better for blending in with the surroundings up there. Taken in Denver, Colorado.
