    Hey, I actually slept in today; 9:30am is a record for me :) Took my wife and nephew for a walk to see if we could spot an owl and we did. If I can get this close with my nephew around anyone can get these pics :) Used a little fill flash to help with the backlighting and got some mega red eye. Will have to fix that in the printed photos. It was so colourful I though I would post them with the red eye.

    Ha ha, looks like the owl was giving you the evil eye and about to do a voodoo spell on you.

    Oh, this third photo is mega-cool. Looks like this owl was not happy at all to get his photo taken! Whoa!
    (And the blood on his beak says it all - he's not entirely 'peaceful'... but what can he do when he get hungry, eh? He's an owl, after all).

    Eric I was there myself this morning around 7 am and saw two. Won't post, just can't touch yours. Well except for the red eyes.

    I'm surprised the owl stuck around w/ fill flash going off at him. Pretty cool. I like the first one a lot. Even with the red-eye.

    This one liked better with a different crop.

    I actually like the redeye picture, it's different. Really like the crop on the 2nd pictureof the 2nd post. The owl still looks pissed, red eye or not.

    Ya, I really like the last image I posted, he looks really pissed. The red on the beak I take to be blood and I find it takes away that awe effect of the nice owl and reveals it's true character.
