Barred Owl, Waiting

He waited, I waited.

A Barred Owl passed over me and I just saw his wing. A few moments later another one zipped through the tree canopy.  After walking along slowly and listening as the two owls “talked” to each other and several Crows made a ruckus overhead I spotted one high in a tree.

He then flew towards a pond where I have seen an Owl before. I slowly walked in that direction, standing and waiting and I finally spotted him. This tree stands in the middle of that small pond. He was a little closer to the ground, maybe twenty feet (six meters) up.

I inched around the side of the pond and got a side view.

And a few more feet along and more waiting, the sun popped out for a minute.

These were taken with my Sony Alpha 6500 with Sony 55-210 MM lens, which I rarely use for wildlife.  However, my Canon is off having the media slot fixed and I was pleased how these came out.
