Great Gray Owl

It's a little off topic with my usual urban oriented writings but I needed an excuse to post a great photograph. My friend Sean recently made the 10 hour drive to photograph a Great Gray Owl. These northern owls occasionally travel south of their normal haunts in search of food. This winter has been an extraordinary year for seeing these beautiful birds close to the Canadian border.

I'm glad you like it. The owl looks a little like he was surprised by the photographer!
