Gail and I love owls but rarely get an opportunity to photograph them.  Last Friday we were photographing ducks at qa local pond when a fellow photographer told us about an owl roosting in a tree in PA about 4 hours away.  We decided to take a chance and drive there on Sunday.  This is one of the images.

7D2 with 100-400 II @ 400 hand held.  Image is about 70% of original.  Thanks for looking.
Life is beautiful, but remember, a little mild insanity keeps us healthy
