I photographed this Great Horned Owl back in September 2011 at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. I saw a pair last year but didn’t get a good photo of them. I have not seen one this year but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I do.

I photographed this Owl while standing outside my pickup. I was using the door as a brace to keep my camera steady.
