This barred owl peeked at me through the foliage in a cypress swamp in St. Martin Parish, Louisiana, USA.

    How beautiful!!!! I’ve been trying to “capture” one of these “guys” for the
    past 3 years!!! I hear them all the time in the woods behind our home!!

  • Thank you, Lorilee! I’m sure with persistence, you’ll find an opportunity to photograph one eventually! They are curious and do respond to owl calls!
