How wonderful to get such a nice visitor at the pond! :)
He does look tired! Guess he's a true "night owl"... yea I know, that was bad-haven't had my coffee yet:@)
OMG. That is one beautiful, BIG owl. Thank you, ma'am, for capturing and sharing this one!! blessings ~ t
What a beauty. Owls are such a treat. Just like your blog.
Nice shots. Unusual it would be out that late.
I guess with the dry weather it is looking to cool off, or maybe looking for a meal. normaly there would be small pray looking for water. there has been one hanging around here lately.
Great picture, very striking against all the greenery.Poor wee thing looks like he needs a rest or something.
cool ! I am amazed by owls like this guy. I love his eye shape.KAT
Owls are pretty cool. We had one of these hanging around the back yard a couple years ago. I don't know what happened to him.
He may have had a rough night but he's still pretty or handsome.
It's nice to see him in the daylight. The night shots don't let us see the true beauty of his feathers.
Never met an owl I didn't like! This one's a beauty.
How cool! I'd love to see one of those guys in real life!
Whoooooo,good looking guy!
And, when he finally "wakes up" enough to realize you are there, I can imaging him asking, "Whaz you lookin' at?"
Beautiful bird -- I think he realized what you were doing in the last photo! :)
Awesome! I've never seen an owl in the wild before!!
Fabulous! Very nice series. I love Owls.
What a lovely visitor!
Fantastic owl captures! How wonderful to see this beauty out in the open. Very exciting!
These are beautiful The wise owl was lucky to find your water. He knows he is safe and only has to watch for some lady with a camera. :) B
...you are the luckiest girl alive to be on such neighborly terms with this beauty!! I wish I had one in my back yard... I love his sweet face..
p.s. love your Texas rain gauge----63 days of 100+ (my oh, my...).
He does look a little worse for the wear. Handsome fellow.
Great shots, and yes he looks a little rough!
Wow! I never ever see owls,you are so lucky !
He really does look sleepy! Beautiful shots!
It is nice to see one in the day time. He has weird eyes in that last picture. It is really good though looking at him straight on.
He's beautiful! I still haven't seen any more around here, tho we hear them all the time.
He's a pretty boy! I sometimes hear an owl in our fir trees by the house, but I never get to see him. Great shot!
Beautiful bird. You take such great pics. What kind of camera do you have?
Id like to invite everyone to my blog Amish Stories today to read a post from old order Mennonite Jean of New York state. Jean has taken-in a foster child named Michael whose parents are no longer able to take care of him. He's English and Jeans family is old order Mennonite (horse and buggy) but that makes no difference in the love that this young man is receiving from this family. Thank you folks and i hope to see some of you drop by the blog. Richard
Śliczna, a najbardziej podoba mi się jej piąte zdjęcie z góry . Pozdrawiam
Your photos are so great! It isn't everyday that I can see a barred owl this close!We might be in for some cooler weather and rain this weekend! Keep your fingers crossed!
His feathers are beautiful! Hope he got a meal last night.
You do get beautiful visitors.. lovely photos.hugs,Pam
GREAT shots! He did look like he'd had a rough one.All joys,Sharon Lovejoy Writes from Sunflower House and a Little Green Island
He looks like he's saying "What? Morning already? I didn't get a wink of sleep all night!"
The forest can be rough hang out?
There is something about owls that absolutely fascinates me!
Aw, he's beautiful! I feel like I could reach out and pet him!
Beautiful owl shots:) What I'd give to see a sleepy lovely owl like that in real life!
They are so interesting and you'd done a fine job of showing them to us. I like how flexible their necks are as they seem to be able to look in any direction.
The dry weather must be making the night hunters put in some long hours looking for a meal. Remarkable photos. Hoping for rain for you.
Those are great photos. You were very fortunate to have him out in the open like that. I have some Barred Owl pictures I never did anything with as they (yeah, more than one owl) were buried deep within a tree with very poor lighting. Very nice TWG.
These are fantastic.Daylight makes such a difference in the pictures.
What luck to see this in your yard! Great catch.
Ooooh~ he is so beautiful!Been out all night, now he's ready to go home to his wife... ;0)
amazing he is out after day break. maybe the heat is getting to him. he does look a little tired
I always LOVE your owl pics! These are terrific and what a gorgeous bird. Paula is probably right, he's been out all night and he's ready to go home to his wife!! Sounds about right to me -- why should owls be different from humans??????Have a great day!Sylvia
Such a beauty! It's my favourite bird:)
I see your name top and center all over the blogosphere and I finally decided it was time to check out the Queen of Comments!! :-)Great blog and great work (both photography and drawing)! Nice to finally meet you!
such a great visitor...the wise old owl...
I imagine the hunting is getting a little tough, with your drought. Maybe he's trying a little daylight hunting to see if his luck improves.
Looking for breakfast ^^Great shots
He's so sweet. Unless you are a mouse
Such a beautiful bird! Wonder what he was doing up so late. Terrific series of shots.
very beautiful. I love owls, so noble.
T, nice shots! Nice to see it in the daylight!
What a great model!
Beautiful; what did you have to do to get him to look your way?
What a beautiful bird, beautiful pics! I've never seen and owl out in daytime. You are so lucky!
He is a beauty. Love all your pics. Have a great day.Sandy
You know how I feel about the barred owls, and our having 2 right now is a real thrill for me!! I never grow tired of them!! I hope you're having a good day!!
I love owls...they are so cool. Great pics!
He's wonderful! I missed seeing mine this year, first time in 5 years I missed him. :( I love that you got so many nice shots of him!
Beautiful.. great shots as always! Since we've had the Summer of (Screech) Owls this year.. I am completely obsessed w/ owls. Completely! Love all the expressions you captured too. -Tammy
Oh I love owls, and yours is beautiful! We have one old owl that hangs around our place, and he is such a "hoot"....sorry, couldn't resist.
I love that Owl, send it to me, please.
Beautiful photos, as usual! He does appear to be a bit sleepy....Seems like forever since I've visited. Thankfully things are back to normal 'round these parts!
Great photos. Very nice to find the owl sitting out in such an accessible place.
He or she is a beauty - wonder why it was there that late in the day?
I love Barred Owls! One morning I had a young one sit on the beam of the front porch all day, taking shelter from a rain storm. Then, off he flew to hunt...:)JP
The last photo, WOW. those piercing black eyes! And I think in the first few series of pictures, this owl actually turned his head around 360 degrees?
I love owls!
AH! Very cool shots!
How lucky to get him out in the light! Great shots.
Look at his eyes! Just gorgeous, he is!
Great captures of the Barred owl. He looks like he is looking around for his next meal.
What a precious set of eyes! I find him so captivating. Owls are the coolest bird ever.
OMGosh... He is beautiful. How fortunate you are to have him there. The eyes are captivating.
Oh, he's simply wonderful!!!
With his ruffled feathers and those sleepy eyes, he does look like he had a rough night!
A great lot of shots! He's beautiful, a wonderful coat.
he's a real beauty. perhaps he was dehydrated from lack of water. speaking of water, don't want to rub it in or anything, but we FINALLY got some rain today. yep. rained the better part of the day. haven't checked the gauge yet but it will definitely help. hope you get some too. real soon, because you guys need it way more than we do here. (the photo of the white horse in previous post is a knock-out).
He's beautiful! Great shots! And how lucky to see him during the day!
I know how he feels, but I still don't look that good in the morning!
He does look a little droopy in the eyes!
Very beautiful in the light of the day!Teresa
I love the pattern of his feathers.
That must have been thrilling to get such wonderful shots of an owl in daylight. I do wonder though if the poor thing has insomnia.
It is so calm to allow you take so many shots, lovely!
Can owls be any more beautiful? Nope ~ I think not. Wise and beautiful!xo Catherine
Your photos of this owl are amazing!!!
In all it's glory, i just want to say Hooters. So immature i know. Just put you on my post today as a blog i highly recommend for Blog Day today. Elvis & Priscilla did get a mention too, love Posie
May as well make comment 100 the link, love Posiehttp://posiepatchworkblog.blogspot.com/2011/08/celebrating-blog-day-yes-really-there.html
Hi Theresa, Great pictures of the owl... Where do they usually go during the day? I assume the sleep somewhere in the trees....Hugs,Betsy
Lovely photo's of the Barred owl! Perhaps it will stick around for awhile and give you more opportunities. :)I too have been fortunate to capture some images of this gorgeous bird.If you're interested, you can see my captures here: http://daniels-view.blogspot.com/2011/03/barred-owl.htmlCheers!Daniel
Bravo..........He does look a little droopy in the eyes!
Wow! Those are beautiful shots of that owl. He really let you get close!
Seeing an owl in the daylight really shows up his beautiful coloring that you wouldn't be able to appreciate in the dark. Great shots
I wonder if the dry weather makes it harder or easier for them to find something to eat...
Pay attention to what he says---he's a wise old bird, you know...
such a treasure to see!
So beautiful. He looks like artwork!!
I would just be going crazy with the camera too! Just wonderful.
Beautiful! You look like you live in a wildlife preserve!
These are priceless! What a gift to have been afforded the opportunity of taking so many excellent photographs of this exceedingly beautiful owl!
some beautiful shots I wonder if the drought brought it in so close?
Really like the shots with the owl looking back at you. Lovely captures.
Wow what a Beauty shot.
