An Owl!

We were at the park last night just before dusk and I saw what I thought was a hawk land in the tree across the creek. I watched him for a while and he stayed there. There’s no easy way to get over to the clearing he was in. It’s across a creek and then through underbrush. And I wasn’t dressed for that kind of trek 🙂 So I got as close as I could with my zoom lens and discovered it was actually an owl, not a hawk! I’ve loved owls since I was a kid and this was the first I’d ever seen one outside of a zoo. Not a great picture, but neat to see him!
