Great Horned Owl

Bubo virginianus


Large owl with horn-like tufted ears.


Mixed forest.


The camera wasn't ready of course when this gorgeous owl came soaring across the lake and directly above my head while it was running from an understory burn that the neighbors were conducting. These were the only shots I had time for before it continued it's journey running from the smoke.
