It's been a very good winter for raptors so far.  The Great Gray Owl was a real treat to see as I wasn't counting on seeing one.  It was very active near sunset but perched long enough in this tree for a photo.  

Canon 7D MK2, 70-200 2.8L + 1.4x.  Handheld.  Thanks for looking.

The warm evening lighting is sweet. Also, great eye contact.

the owl season is great ( so far ) and the end of the day light is awesome on your GGO, well done WILSON.

Thanks Peter.  I agree totally.  It has been a great winter for seeing owls.  I used to not like winter all that much until I took up bird photography.  Now, I look forward to winter every year as it's the only time to see certain rare owls.

What a nice shot with a warm sunset color. You are so lucky to have them around. Great Gray Owls are very rare in western Washington.
