Captain, There Be Owls Here!

Living in my back yard. This was shot this past spring. This one was an adolescent that couldn't even hoot, but they sure can now!

Nice shot! I love owls, even the hooting at night I find somewhat soothing. As long as it's not a Screech Owl

That is a beautiful capture of this magnificent creature. The feathers are definitely sharp with nice plumage shown.

Thanks all for the nice comments. I feel fortunate to live in an area where the habitat is friendly to the owls, etc. Surprisingly we have seen lots of wildlife common to FL over the years, except bears, cougars, and rattlesnakes. Just about everything else however.
