While on our evening walk along the river, I spied this pair of Great Horned Owls sitting high in a cottonwood.
The larger owl on the left (I assume the female) turned around and looked back at me before taking flight.
By the time she flew out of the trees where I could get a clear shot of her, she was almost over Laurie. Owls are silent in flight, so she flew over Laurie without notice.
I walked around the other side of where the male was perched and got a good shot of how well his feathers blend in with the cottonwood's bark.
He turned around to see what I was up to, and gave me a sideways glance.
So I moved around and got a sideways shot of him.
I was waiting to see if he would fly, but he was content on staying perched and looking demure.
