A Great gray owl on the edge of the Kananaskis forest
Great gray owls blend into the forest effortlessly so it is easy to lose track of them. When I have a chance to photograph one flying through the trees it is very special for me. I discovered this owl while hiking a trail on the edge of the Kananaskis Country park area west of Bragg Creek. It stayed on the perch for a half an hour keeping track of other creatures nearby and following unusual noises around. I can’t count on which way a bird will launch when it does decide to fly so I was happy when this one flew in my direction and flew to my right. It climbed to a higher perch on the opposite side of the trail which is where I left it to its business.
