Well the weather is rather depressing. Only 18 degrees this morning, my Lilacs which are budding out are probably doomed. Supposed to be even colder on Friday. 😩 I had chosen owls for the theme today and glad I did because seeing them cheers me up. I got to to see this one when a friend invited me over who gets them in her yard. They were coming at about the same time each evening and did not disappoint on this day. It is a young Barred Owl and was hunting for dinner but posed several times for some shots.
