Two of my favorite things. An Owl, and Spanish Moss. Now put them together and you get a great photo op.
It was a little dark being under a canopy in a swamp, and rain about to start, but that’s what Owls like.
When we first arrived we saw nothing. Finally this dark lump on a tree moved. He was getting a position to get look in the water. From past experience I know a Barred Owl will go into shallow water so we looked in this area more than a few others.
I had planned on a very short marsh walk. This was a detour and again shows if you go out you will always find something.
