Watching over the prairie
I found this Great horned owl (Bubo virginianus) perched on a long abandoned barn’s window sill. It was a cold day and this spot was out of the wind and facing the sun, which did come out a little later. Pretty smart place to doze the daylight hours away.

It turns out I’m not the only one not fond of the wind. Great shot.

Parece que va a salis como un RELOJ DE CUCO.
Que buen camuflaje. Y que gran momento el que has captado.
