Earlier this week, as I was out walking shortly before sunset, I came upon this Barred Owl. It was sitting on the long arm of an oak tree that was stretching across our country road. Though I sometimes hear the hooting of a Barred Owl in the distance, this is the first time I had come across one up close.

Wow, what a capture!
I was surprised how close it let me get. It was a beautiful bird.
I like how you zoomed back to take in the sun & use the owl’s silhouette!
Thanks, Wayne. I think he was positioned to enjoy the view. 🙂
It was quite a treat to come upon on him so unexpectedly.
