Visit from a Great Horned Owl

We are inundated with cottontailed rabbits this year, so seeing this visitor (Great Horned Owl) last night was a welcome sight! It stayed around for several minutes, long enough for me to see it balancing on my deck post and then for me to get 'up close and personal' with my iPhone camera through the storm door glass. (First two photos are through the window screen. It was having a heck of a time sitting on the post, guess those long talons kept it from having a grip.)

Such a beautiful visitor! Are you going to paint him/her?

Thanks Serena, I always keep my OWN photos on the 'ready'. You never know!

Thanks - couldn't be found in the daylight usually..I have seen it and one other at dusk, working the area. I am just thankful he is here...need some crowd control on those rabbits.
