About the Image(s)

Barred Owl: I took this photograph on a hike in the woods by the Chattahoochee river. The owl was in the tree canopy but luckily there were just a few tree branches between my camera and the bird. In post processing, I brightened the head of the owl and blurred the background just a little.

Nikon D500: ISO 320, 130mm, f/4.8, 1/160

Sarita, Are you in Calif or did you move to the East Coast?

Sarita, I have yet to photograph an owl in the wild......I keep looking and plan to go to a spot where burrowing owls are plentiful in the spring (assuming it is open). It was planned for last spring and got interrupted by Covid.

This guy is so expressive, looks like he can't believe you would take his picture ;-). Great composition and nice sharp image of the owl. I might suggest you try and reduce the highlights on the right of the owl so that our eye is not dragged back to that bright spot. Very nice image!
