Owls make the best photographs. Here might be the best of the best. Their eyes are always expressive and clear, in the head shot here you can actually see our reflections.
Born in the spring of 2016 she still has the white head feathers but old enough to fly and impress me with her claws and silent wings.
Born in captivity, she was bred at the Avian Conservation Center in South Carolina. There she will raise her own young and help provide education on the flight of owls.
