Up on the roof…out in the woods

And our owls are back.  It’s been about five days since we last heard them; at dinner time their unmistakable screech started up 100 feet from my kitchen window.  I think they hunt here for a few days and then hang out somewhere else when the pickings get especially slim.  This particular owl sat in plain view for as long as I cared to take photos.  (I didn’t see the other owl but I could hear it.)   I spent about 20 minutes trying to capture interesting shots and then decided to move on so that the owl could stop worrying about what I was up to.  There’s something to be said for knowing when it’s time to leave.
