Barred Owl ~ Camera-Critters #197

Hubs does it again! I sure love when he finds me things to photograph.

On Monday, I had got home from my day job and was just getting started on quite a bit of work for my second job when the phone rang.

"Hello." I said

"Grab your camera and get ready to jump in the truck." He said

and we both hung up.

and I did as instructed.

and we drove to the end of our road.

and we saw this.

and I photographed it.

and it flew away.

I just love when he finds me things to photograph.

The fencepost makes a perfect perch!

Oh boy, what a brilliant picture. Bless the hubs, and you for sharing that beautiful owl with us.

Carletta

I hope he got a huge hug for that one!
What a wonderful shot!
That little owl chose that pristine white post and posed beautifully.

Sandee McKinney

beautiful capture, Misti!

Ashrunner

Nice shot of an interesting bird. Barred Owls aren't around my area, but they are found a bit north of me.

Good find, good shot.

Shannon W.

What a sweet hubby you have.

This owl reminds me of my mother..she collected owls and loved spotting them in the wild.

Lesley

What an amazingly clear shot! I would love to see such an owl in the wild.

Janis

Wow how lucky to catch this shot! My hubs look for photo ops for me too!

Adrienne in Ohio

I just love that he called you and whisked you away to photograph something. Sounds like a very special guy. And the photo is perfect!

Faye

This one prompted an "Ah!" when I scrolled down to your photo. Perfection! BTW, my dog doesn'
t keep me sane but I sure do love him. As I did a crazy border collie named Zack who was with me for almost 16 years. How old is the little beauty in your header?

Rose

Wonderful!

Kay L. Davies

What a great husband, what a great photo op, and how wonderful the owl waited for you. A three-fer.

Sallie (FullTiime-Life)

WOW! Beautiful bird. I love this -- that's (in my opinion) the best kind of gift a sweet husband could give you.

Linda

Beautiful shot! My hubby does the same thing...he is always finding things for me to photograph....I love it!

Snap

I think I'm in love! I adore Owls. Wonderful shot! Happy Critter Day!

Linda

I love the shot - and enjoyed the sense of urgency in the phone call...we do the same thing at my house. One of us will quietly call, "get the camera and meet me..." and there we go. It is wonderful to share a passion! What a great reward at the end!

Martha in PA

What a great shot.

Misty, that's a gorgeous shot! The magnificent owl is looking right at the camera and the sky is so incredibly blue!

Wow - that is magnificent!

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily

That's awesome that he's 'on the watch' for you! Very cool & very beautiful capture, Misty! =)

EG Wow

What a cool husband you have! (I;d be jealous, but I have one who finds me photos too, so we are both very, VERY lucky.)

Great shot of the owl. I tried just last week to get a good photo of a great horned owl. What a failure! But hey! Yours turned out so well!

Love that shot! I always see them at dusk, when it's super hard to snap a good photo, especially hand-held.

Great shot, I love owls, and it's hard to find them to take shots as well.
