My obsession with owl runs deep, it's borderline unhealthy. Late one evening as my wife and I were hiking at one of our favorite parks, a unmistakable, haunting call irrupted through the old growth oak forest. It was a barred owl (Strix varia), and it was directly overhead. As we continued our hike it began to follow us through the forest, and soon a second one joined us. Turns out these two owls were recently fledglings, and we were likely some of the first humans they had encountered. Thankfully, I still had my camera out and was able to capture this moment in the fading light. I was able to fire off three frames before it disappeared into the darkness. The icing on the cake, for me, is the fading lighting peaking through the arch of the talon. Lebanon Hills Regional Park, Minnesota.
