I like to explore remote areas in search of wildlife and a variety of Nature subjects. Finding a beautiful Owl can be very rewarding, especially when you get to spend some one on one time observing these wonderful birds without a herd of photographers competing around you. You get a natural looking subject with very little to no stress. Sometimes even the light is ideal.

In all honesty I had an idea that a barred Owl inhabited this region. I had heard it just over a month ago. When we headed out, I kept my fingers crossed. These birds are extremely silent and the chances of finding one in a large forest are pretty slim. Lucky for us, after just a few kilometers, it was majestically perched four meters above the ground. The forest was enchanting, snow covered all the trees which made the encounter even more magical.
