This owl was taken at the Mountsberg Conservation Area near Campbellville, Ontario. This was during a 2 hour photo shoot put on by Ray Barlow of Ray Barlow Photography. There were 8 photographers and the birds were fantastic. Unfortunately the lighting wasn’t the best on this day so I am going to try again next month
