I have been wanting to take a pic of an Owl for a long time - Today I found this Barred Owl (I believe, thank you if you can confirm), and even though the IQ is nothing exceptional (I only had the 70-200 mm + Kenko X2), and a few twigs are ill-placed, I am still very happy of that first.
Now I have to go back there and try to shoot some hunting action, but that would be something else entirely...
Thanks for looking; C&C welcome.

Nice shot, I've never gotten a shot that clear of a Barred Owl in a tree.

A guy who was here and knows the area told me he had seen him 2-3 times already, but never that clearly, always hidden in the trees.
