The sun was peeking in and out after a heavy late afternoon downpour. The tree canopy has filled in over the small pond below this Barred Owl’s perch further limiting the light on this gorgeous emerald scene.
This stand of Bamboo is drooping over a small pond making a perch for a Barred Owl to watch the water for food. After much waiting he dropped down and snatched a crayfish, action I did not capture.
When there is a little breeze these hollow Bamboo stalks make pleasing percussion sounds, and occasionally cause a concentrating photographer jump.
