What type of owl is this? Seemed pretty tame compared to the rest I found today. He pretty much let me take as many pictures as I wanted.

I *think* it's a Northern Hawk Owl, but I'm really spitballing on that one. Whatever it is, you got a terrific shot of it!

Very nice. I wish there were areas around where I am to find Owls as regularly as you're finding them. :)

Yeah my only guess was the Northern Hawk Owl but I couldn't tell for sure. I found 3 owls along the same gravel road within a mile of each other! Pretty sweet day :D. Well I'm noticing the outlined face and the lines in the front feathers. Guess maybe it is a short eared owl.

Great shot. I thin it's a Short-eared Owl. Hawk Owl has a barred breast and this one is streaked.

Very nice; I like this one better than the others you posted; The lighting is somehow better. Congrats on a nice find.

The other one was front lit and this was backlit. I should try and tame down the highlights a bit more on the other maybe.
