Great Horned Owl

Normally a photo like this would not make the cut for posting on 365, but I am happy that I was able to salvage a semi-decent shot. I hardly ever see owls. Found this one because two crows were mobbing it. The bird was backlit and pretty high up in the tree. I zoomed in to the max, pushed up my ISO to try to get some details, and then further lightened and tightened at home. Sometimes you just have to get the shot even if you know it won't be perfect.
It was a joy for you to see this bird. This photo shows me the bird but not to your perfectionist standards.
Here in OZ, our largest owl is the Powerful Owl. I have seen it only once, and we had to settle for owl covered with leaves photos :)

Turned out really nice. I have found several of the owls by hearing the blue jays making a lot of noise and then going to them, and sure enough, there sits the owl.
