Barred By Nature by Dorothy Koval in Wildlife

Another view of my first owl in his well-chosen camouflage. The light was getting pretty low (he stayed until after dark!) so the trees are a little fuzzy, but I kind of liked the charcoal look and was surprised how much detail I got through the window. S/he was mostly watching the ground for prey, but clearly knew we were in the house and would stare straight at us for a while if we made a sharp noise.Maybe she was telling us "Don't scare the fish away!". I would have loved to go outside, but didn't dare because our only functional door makes so much noise I was sure she would leave even before I could catch her spreading her wings.
