Knowing that the family's been out and about, I went looking for the owls today at lunch.

I'm always jealous of owl shots since I don't see many of them- especially really good shots like these

Beauties Eric.

Thank you, both! I am happy to live with a branch in front of the body if it means the face was out in the open; normally they sit so that leaves/branches are obscuring their heads :p
