Barred Owl

I took this shot through the sunroof of my 4Runner.  The owl just sat and watched.  The light was a little tough due to the bright backlighting and the deep shadows.  I'm never disappointed in the photo because the real enjoyment for me is just seeing them.  This image was made on the wildlife drive at Emeralda Marsh.  This 4 mile drive is open for only a few months beginning in February and is a great place to see all sorts of wading birds, raptors, alligators and snakes.  Sandhill cranes will nest in this area during the winter months as well.  You can check it out for yourself at http://www.lakecountyfl.gov/bird_watching/emeralda_marsh.aspx
