Camera Critters - The Great Horned Owl

It's been quite a while since I joined Camera Critters. I can honestly say I have missed looking at all these wonderful critters from around the world, and I am happy to be participating again.

This is a preview of my photographs when I had the opportunity to take shots of rescued owls and hawks last Saturday as shown in a few previous posts.


If you would like to hear the call of a Great Horned Owl, click on its name.

Thank you Misty, I truly have missed joining in. To see other fun critters please click here.

Owls are such a cool bird and to see them in their natural habitat is awesome. We used to see one on our walks and I would always forget my camera.

I don't see this one around here. The Barred owls stay near by and I hear their calls quite often late at night. Beautiful photos!
