What an incredible angle, Linda, and you even managed an attractive catchlight in his eye. #7738112

Linda A. Braddock July 14, 2009

Marty, Thankyou, I was almost right under him, back when I shot this, I would go into the woods, and I have a book that does Owl calls, and I would play his call, and most of the time he would fly pretty close. The first time I did this, he flew over my head into a tree next to me, I was in awe, and I shot a lot of pictures, it made my day! #7738663
