Another long-eared shot from this past winter. This was shot through multiple branches and twigs and was the only clear angle I could get of this guy. I kept the tree trunk in the frame to show the resemblance of colours and markings in the owls feathers and how they blend in to their surroundings so well. They have become one of my absolute favourite animals and photography subjects because of their poses and spectacular eyes.
