20121112 011 SERIES - Great Horned Owl 1r2.jpg

Ottawa West

Three close-cropped portraits of a Great Horned Owl. A few Crows came around and their squawking caused the Owl to open its eyes wide and look up, thus giving a great opportunity to capture the eyes. For the most part, the Owl just wanted to sleep. The Crows only stayed for a little while.
