This image is cropped way way in.. but how exciting for me anyway! Today while driving the road where the Bighorn Sheep were seen, I saw this huge owl come up into this tree from the canal. It sat there with it's back to me for quite some time, in the shade.
I got out the tripod and 2x converter for my 200mm lens, trying not to pout about how badly I want a longer lens. I was excited just to see this owl when I zoomed in to know it truely was what I thought. Anyway.. it is a beauty. I sat with eyes closed and just rested. It was still there as I drove off, knowing I got the best shot I could.
