Man have I been seeing these guys everywhere! Just last night alone I saw three as I was out driving around. (all in a distance of 2 miles!) And me with no camera.
Since I made my last post I have been trying to get a better picture of one. Tonight I spotted one sitting on a line along the road over an open field where it was hunting for mice and the like. I have touched the picture up a bit to bring out the details and color.
My next goal is to get a picture of one in flight as they are truly amazing to see soaring overhead.

I love owls. I always have. One thing I like about this time of year here is the Barred Owls become more visible, usually showing up in the same areas around dusk. This year I have been fortunate enough to have one been visiting my yard. I was outside with Finnegan a little while ago and this one soared overhead. I went back in to get the camera, and the owl had landed up on one of the powerlines. Just as I snapped the picture it decided to move on. I was left with a cool shot of this owl with wings in air and talons spread!* Too bad it is from the rear... maybe I'll have to see if I can see it another night.
