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.
