Basking in the Morning Sun

A Great Gray Owl was enjoying Basking in the Morning Sun one cold spring morning, if you look really closely you can see a little bit of frost around his beak.

 

I think Great Gray Owls might be one of my favourite birds to photograph, maybe because they are a little more accommodating, and a little less skittish than other birds.  But I think it’s also just because they are stunning, with their intense yellow eyes with their mottled grey feathers, they are really captivating, and we are lucky to have them resident in Alberta.
