Great Horned Owl
This was taken over the weekend at a Birds of Prey photo shoot hosted by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) at Tuckahoe State Park. They staged 8 different species birds of prey on natural settings. You can see they are tethered, but this was far more enjoyable to photograph than the Eagle Festival I attended with Roger and Tim back in March. And there were only a couple dozen people here so we had a lot of time and plenty of space for everyone.
