I have had this photo for a while but I was never happy with how it turned out. I was able to shoot this Barred Owl at a friend's house in her backyard. It's the only time I have been able to photograph an owl in the wild. It used to hang around her yard and visit the bird bath and stay for fairly long periods of time which was how I got to see it. Anyway, since I took this image, my skills have improved a bit I think and I like the look of it now.
