Leslie, great shot!! You are so lucky to have had the photo op...the only place I have seen this beautiful bird is in captivity. Awesome!!

Thank was incredible.....I was blessed on that day for sure!

I was fortunate to spend a few hours alone with this magnificent owl in the park.....I came up on it quite unexpectedly and it allowed me to sit quietly as it went about it's business of preening, sunning itself, hunting (although not successfully) and, yes, staring at each other. Love was in the air!
