This wild short-eared owl was photographed at Boundary Bay in British Columbia, Canada. This owl and several others were constantly flying around quickly in search of food and battling with northern harriers. This wonderful and speedy owl did a hard bank to the right and headed straight toward me directly into the final low rays of sunlight, with the grasses in front and blue sky and trees behind creating a nice palette of pastel colors and blurred layers thanks to the low f-stop and fast shutter speed.
