Whoo do you see?

This morning we walked around our nearby gardens/cultural center hoping to find a few more spring flowers. I have seen the owl who often resides in this particular tree on previous visits, but wasn’t able to get a good photo before. This morning he was in good view when I stood almost directly below and looked up. I believe he is a great horned owl. He was the highlight of my morning ๐Ÿ˜Š

I think in the bottom photo he is taking a little nap โค

  4. Ditto to Collette’s comments! Impressive photos. I’ve only been that close to an owl at a zoo. We do have wild ones that I’ve seen in the woods but never had a camera with me. You do have a special gift of finding cool things to take photos of, thanks for sharing them with us!

    Thatโ€™s it…Iโ€™m coming for a visit when covid gets under controlโฃ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I love owls and while Iโ€™ve heard them occasionally during summer trips in rural America, I havenโ€™t seen one live.

    You truly ARE a bird whispererโฃ๏ธ ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ˜‚
