Village Owl

Yesterday on the way home from work I had the good fortune to spend some time photographing this beautiful Great Gray Owl (thanks Leslie for tipping me off to the fact this bird was around!).  It was a windy afternoon so the bird's feathers were a little ruffled up while he was perched on the young trees.  I watched him as he surveyed and listened the surrounding area, hoping to sense some prey.  3 times I watched him swoop to the ground, as if looking for potential meal.  I never saw him come up with anything, however.  Soon the light began to fade and I was no longer able to make any good images of him.  I sure hope he was able to eventually find a good meal.
