A Barred Owl at the Oregon Zoo perches in the bough of a tree in his enclosure. Normally, this exhibit is in near total darkness and since you aren't allowed to use flash (a rule I respect, but too many other's don't) he is very hard to photograph. This day however, they must have been simulating daylight for him as the lights were on bright enough to get this great portrait shot of both his face and the distinctive patterns of his back from which he gets his name.

Are you a closet birder? :giggle: Gotta admit, birds are one of my favorite subjects. I think it stems from jealousy in a way....they can fly and I can't! :(

I'm just like you....I pretty much love all animals, even including spiders and snakes, as long as they don't get ON me! :D I'd say it's pretty normal for a woman not to like spiders so whatever you do, DON'T CLICK THIS [link]!!

Sorry, that was a dirty trick and I'm giggling to myself right now, but if it turns out it was TOO mean a trick, I'll stop. I wonder if you were able to resist clicking it anyway? :confused:

Like the man that gets so depressed he decides to commit suicide by shooting himself in the head, but when he pulls the trigger, nothing happens. He checks the gun and finds a bullet in the chamber and is confused why it didn't fire. He thinks maybe the bullet is defective so he has a friend check it out and his friend tells him there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with the SHOULD have fired. So now, the man thinks he has a guardian angel and decides there is a reason he is still alive. You too must have a guardian angel. I went back and checked the link I warned you not to click on and it's perfectly good! It SHOULD have taken you to the photo you don't want to see. :D I guess your guardian angel just didn't want you to look at it. :nod: :wow:

He's Beautiful... Hey a fun little fact, if I remember right. This owl here is actually blind in both eyes. I do not remember his name, but it's amazing how he knows where his food bowl is. ^-^ Beautiful capture though! They usually change the lighting every so often during the day to simulate night and day.
