Walking the White River on Saturday 11-6-10, taking pics of the last of fall colors. I seen some Red Squirrels playing in some horse apple trees,(we call them) I’m hillbilly. So i decided to try an capture them on digital. Walked into the tree line just a little and jumped this owl up from the ground. Scared the you know what, out of me. I kept stalking him to get close enough, finally got 8 or 10 pics. Only about 4, were good enough to keep. Not sure what kind of Owl he is. We have quite a few of these around. We always just call them Barn Owls.Taken with a Kodak Z981.
