A friend of mine (also named Jean) in the Bradner area of Abbotsford captured these pictures of a Great Horned Owl in her yard the other day. I've seen one in my pasture on two occasions, but I've never been able to get anywhere near close enough to photograph him/her, and its usually almost dark when I hear the WHOOOOO and see the silhouette.
The first two shots were taken just at sunrise, so are mostly sihouette. The third (amazing!) shot was taken a bit later in the morning. Click on the image to enlarge, for better viewing.
Thanks for sharing, other Jean - what a treat! (Photos used with permission of JDW)
