Whooo, What, Where, When, Why?

"Whooooo is invading my space?" this owl seemed to question through squinted eyes.

As a journalist, I've been trained to answer the who, what, where, when and why questions. But I don't have a lot of answers for this feathered friend.

Jake saw him a couple of weeks ago in the corral and thought he was injured. But by the time I arrived on the scene, he'd flown into a tree. So much for the injury report, I thought. Then I got another chance when Randy called from the silo to say the owl was back. Well, we assume it's the same owl.

Randy doesn't know whether he was injured or whether he had eaten so many mice at the silo that he was flight challenged at that moment.

Here's the shot straight out of the camera.

Here's the "tweaked" version.
The colors of the silage and the owl's feathers were awfully similar on a cloudy day.
This just helped pop the colors a little more.

True confessions: I may have been grumbling as I drove toward the silo after my husband interrupted me with this bird report and suggested I bring the camera. I'm not grumbling now.

Thanks Jim. I think it was more being at the right place at the right time and a little luck. I guess it means I need to listen to my husband, right?! Thanks for taking time to comment.
