After I took this shot I watched to see if he would turn around but he just kept going south. I continued down Reaume turned the corner and kept watching the trees. As you get closer to Roberts Rd there's a small area that in the summer time would be the safe haven for a lot of birds because of the fragmites and dead trees. It almost looks like a driveway might be there. Unfortunately, people have been dumping there garbage there.
Just as I approached that spot I could see something large sitting on a fallen tree. To my surprise it was a Great Horned Owl. I have been so discouraged this year because I hadn't seen any kind of owl so when I came upon this one I made sure I was going to get a photo of him. I started off on the right side of the road but because of the downed trees branches were in my way to get a clear shot at his face.
I decided to back up and then pull to the left side of the road so I would be sitting right in the entrance of this so-called-driveway. I opened the door slowly and then slid out of my seat to sit on the door frame. Then it was snap, snap, snap until he got a little upset with me and flew away. Unfortunately because of the branches I couldn't get that shot, at least not a clear one.
By the looks of his beak and talons he definitely had either breakfast or lunch. I did go to see if I could find him after he flew off but with no luck, he didn't want to be found. But from the moment I got this shot it was a very good day.
