Guess Whooo Stopped By


I heard an owl the other morning and decided to try to get some pictures, even though it was still pretty dark out. With a bit of tweaking of the brightness and some red eye reduction, I think they turned out okay. S/He actually let me get right up underneath the power pole to get the last couple of photos. It was a Great Horned Owl and man was it BIG!! :)
Sharing with Wild Bird Wednesday and I'm also going to join Kent Weakley for Project 52 Sweet Shot Tuesday this year.

What a great photo! Don't you just love those big owls?! We have a pair that are with us every winter, out hooting away in the snowy dark. It is comforting to hear them when I am out walking the dog at night.

WOW this is awesome I have never seen one in the bush I have been waiting and waiting. Love your fixes. He sure does look huge. B

I love owls, as long as they leave my chickens alone, that is! Great shots, Candy!!!

Kristina said...

Yep, we recently had one in our chicken coop. They are the big ka-hoona for sure.

Cool sighting of the Great Horned Owl! They are awesome!

Marie said...

Wow! really exciting! I have NEVER been able to get a shot of an owl, and barely get them of hawks, so I'm impressed! I saw a video of a Great Horned Owl flying straight for the camera, and it was SCARY! And really cool.

You are pretty clever sneaking up on that owl. You sure your not a ninja !!!!!

Lin said...

Really?! He couldn't find an old rickety TREE to sit in??! It has to be a utility pole????! Criminy. Stupid owl.

Cool shots though!

Good captures. I always love it when I can see the great horned owls. I hope they've nested close by and I can find their nest again. It's so nice to see the little ones grow up.

What a great visitor to have. The photos look a bit ghostly...in a good kind of a way.

Great picture - much better than just a light pole!

Cheers and thinks for linking to WBW.

Nice photo.

That's awesome! (Unless it's after your chickens/cats and other small animals). We sometimes see them but only a glimpse as they fly overhead, nothing like this!

LOVE these owls. I had two baby great horned owls when I was in high school. So awesome.
