My husband and I were walking down the street in our little town Sunday morning, when he spied an owl up in the hollow of a tree. I have never seen an owl in the wild before. We were both very excited. I didn't have my camera with me, but as soon as we got home, I ran back out and was lucky enough to get some shots with my 55-200mm zoom. So I'm posting a few of them here.
I'm not exactly a birder, but I do love to see the birds in my area, and learn a little about them. If anyone can identify this guy, I'd be glad to hear about it. :)
It was so startling to see this bird so clearly, and so close to the road. At first, I almost thought that he might not be real -- just a plastic figure. But then he winked. And that pretty much made my day. :)
Happy Monday, dear bloggers!
