This morning I went to a local park on my way to work. The park has some beautiful Live Oak trees, and I decided to walk around there to see what I could find. Almost as soon as I entered the wooded area (about 8am), I saw a Great Horned Owl fly away from me, and then another followed shortly after. The first one landed not too far away from me, and its gaze was often just as fixed on me as mine was on it. It let me photograph it for several minutes before I decided it was time to go to work--a very cooperative model, if I do say so myself.
