While walking in the woods another photographer asked us if we had seen the Barred Owl, and walked back to make sure we found it. It was out of his way but great for us. Bad lighting, colorcasts etc. seem to be my experience with Owls. A lot of work goes into getting the colors right, fixing huge shifts in lighting. Not a big surprise because owls like to sleep during the day and avoid the bothersome crows (the latter defending their turf and nests). Just once I would like to photograph an owl out in the open!
