Barred Owl :iconowlplz:
My most memorable experience with a wild creature in the forest.
In this photo she is looking down and listening for mice under the snow
As I searched for chickadees and squirrels there she was sitting on a branch
no more then six feet above me, she did not seem to mind me at all, I spent
almost 2 hours with her until my fingers could no longer move !

Huntsville Ontario Canada

Such a beautiful creature. Often I feel that owls are one of those animals that don't get enough love around the world. Them being mostly known as nocturnal, mice killing birds I think doesn't really work in their favor. I have seen a few tame ones, and they were so loving. Nice photograph, great lucky timing on that pose! :)

What an awesome experience. I'm so jealous. My meetings with owls have been seldom and brief. Someday .... ;)  I love owls.
