Barred Owl 2 by illmatar Barred Owl 2 by illmatar
Ever wonder who's more curious...you or the critter? We had great fun checking each other over very, very carefully.

I think I annoy them with my paparazzi mentality.

Got to love those Barred Owls! I feed them goldfish all the time from my tiny garden pond and then they dance for me. Nice pic!

OO! I'm jealous. Unfortunately I live in a very open Yuppie Reservation with no large trees. I would LOVE to have some owls to feed, but we hardly even see squirrels. We drive nearly an hour to this park and it never fails us when I need my nature fix.

They are just as curious right back. One of the rangers told us how she caught a couple of yahoos with a boom box in their truck. They were playing owl calls and whatdayaknow, they called an owl! It sat ON the boombox IN their truck, apparently very happy to inspect its surroundings and forcing them to wait it out! They couldn't reach the tape deck to turn it off. She was so mad at them!

You lucky devil! I just spent two weeks trying to get a photo of the barred owls in my parents' yard and didn't get a one! Not even a crappy one! I saw the buggers several times, but could never get a photo. I either didn't have my camera, or they'd be gone by the time I did get my camera, or it would be too dark to get the shot. Well, I'm glad to see that someone out there got the chance to get a fantastic shot of one of these beautiful birds. This type of owl has a special place in my heart :heart:

Even a blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes...and even a hack photographer like me gets lucky now and then. Believe me, I have about a thousand owl photo failures. We see them all the time in the park, but of course usually its too dark for my camera too. We just happened to catch this one out early. It was near dusk and overcast so I guess s/he was ambitious. I got about 15 decent shots out of the encounter - the owl was completely unconcerned about us and mostly watched the woods behind itself.

I love them too. I love when they laugh! I can not control myself when they laugh!
