Photo of the Day
 
Great Grey Owls are one of the few owls that routinely hunt during daylight hours and perch on relatively low tree branches making them a photographers dream. This particular owl and another juvenile in the area were quite dedicated hunters and would search for mice and voles in the dry grass and meadows swooping long and low before gliding back up to a suitable perch. It was seemingly unphased by human presence and would stare right into the camera often both during flight and while scanning for prey from the pine branches.
