Great Horned Owl
by ScubaLdy on 12/28/10 06:25 PM

This guy has been hooting most of the day - while it is overcast - over the last few days. When the sun comes out he stops. I found him sitting on top of the utility pole one lot in from the beach front. After I got these shots I moved in a little closer and his mate took off from deep in a Sea Grape tree. Couldn't get a shot of her.

Hariette, I've never seen one on the island. Great pics!

I'm happier than a pig in s__t...a foot on the sand...and a Belikin in my hand!

Come on down Elbert.
I didn't have my tripod with me and the 500 lens is long and heavy so I just clicked off three or four fast shots and out of many was able to get three in focus. When I next hear him I'll take my tripod.
