Nice work! There are a few around here, but I've never had any luck getting shots of one. I watched a pair of them at the local park years ago fill up on the 17 year cicadas that had hatched one afternoon. It was quite a sight.

Very cool Bret, it's nice when they come to you :). I hear them at night from time to time but don't go looking for them in the dark.

Well done, Bret. I've gotten a few shots of them, but nothing this good.

Thank You very much everyone, much appreciated!
Captain, Bee, Peter, Cheffievrs, Thank You for looking in and your comments especially, much appreciated. Thanks much!

Ian, I was quite surprised, all of the little guys, the whole neighborhood was dead quiet which usually means the Coopers were up in a tree, I actually had two Coops come in on a late day hunt not long ago, I have never seen two come in at the same time, they both missed again though. I looked up in the Walnut tree and did a double look when I saw the size and those big eyes, very cool.

Al, I thought that they were fairly common, at least in the early or late hours, The local Bird list-Serve has a weekly walk through the largest fresh water marsh on the Eastern Seaboard, almost every week they tell of one of these in the same tree or there about each week. The Backyard here now, thats another matter, first in over 20 years. I did see him for a brief moment today. Good news I think, hope to catch Him or Her in better light.

Sandy, Thank You most kindly, you are right, late in the day, pointing right at the setting Sun, made for a bit of pp work, tough light it was for sure, I was pleasantly surprised to see this beauty sitting looking down at me. Thanks again!

Super, Bret, great shots! And I know of what you speak re color adjusting. I've decided unless it just looks horrible, I best leave it alone. I just make it worse.

I have never seen an owl that I remember, so I am a bit jealous. ;-)a
