My favorite of the owl pics I've gotten so far -- two GH Owl Fledglings, fresh out of the nest:

This is the only Long-eared Owl I've seen in the wild:

I've seen several Short-eared Owls, but this mediocre image is the best I've managed so far:

And  last but not least, here is another one of which I'd sure like to get a closer, better shot, Snowy Owl:

These two were taken in a classroom at our Nature Center, so not "wild birds".

But that day, I took a hundred pictures of a Great Horned and a Barred because I was bound and determined to catch them blinking! The Barred was tougher. Patience paid off.
