Rain is magical... by illmatar Rain is magical... by illmatar
and so are owls.

Lots of barred owls were out early. The water level at the park is higher than I've ever seen (at least the road was still open.) They were just having a field day with all the critters climbing out on the road. I have restrained myself to one photo...but the sparkly drops behind this owl were too perfect to keep to myself.

Wow, this is great! My two favorite birds are ospreys and barred owls. What a great capture!

Thanks.  :)  There's lot's of ospreys too...and eagles.  My favorite is when either of those decide to bathe in the lake for us.  All dignity gone...lots of splashing and cheeping.  Yeah...cheeping.  Even the vocalizations turn completely silly.  Unfortunately they are usually so far and so busy all I get is blurr with the camera, but at least my memories are clear on the subject.  :XD:

I love the droplets behind the owl, it really adds a little pizazz to the entire photo:)

Heh.  Exactly.  Like some damned pixie came by and sprinkled sparkles.

It was Trooper, he sprouted wings that carried his fat furry butt down to Florida and he drooled all over the branches ;)  Now that would be epic hilarity from him!

LOL!  I am having visions of this big black kitty sailing through the sky and leaving drool dew drops behind him in a glittering trail of EWWW.

He just finished drooling on the couch since I brushed him, he is worse than a dog!
