Great Gray Owl

What a GREAT Christmas gift we got this year.  On Christmas Eve day I was out and about and a little voice in my head told me to go down this road near our house.  As I was approaching a curve the truck in front of me scared up a large bird and immediately I thought OWL!  I also immediately hoped it was a gray owl as I have not yet seen one.  So I carefully turned around and slowly headed back to the tree and there he was, a Great Gray Owl.  What a magnificent bird, just stunningly beautiful.  I reached over carefully for the camera, not taking my eyes off of him, and grabbed…nothing.  No camera.  Arrgg.  Always Carry a Camera.  So I watched him for a couple of minutes and headed home.  The good news is that I knew where he was now and I expected to be able to find him again.  So Christmas Day we headed out for some owling.  We looked for him for a good hour or so and we were getting ready to leave when Dee spotted him.  We got to photograph and observe him for about ten or fifteen minutes.  Totally topped off my day and made it an absolutely great Christmas.  I hope you and yours had a great Christmas too!
