I've been looking to photograph a Long-eared Owl since I started photography 10 years ago. Today was the the day. I spent 5 hours with this one in a snow storm. It spent most of the time sleeping until every once in a while a Bluejay would come by and wake it up. Long-eared Owl usually hide in thick brush, so it was difficult to get good focus through the branches. Finally at the end of the day it turned to a different angle and gave me a clear shot.
