I have always loved this little owl, especially since in all my travels and shooting, I had yet to come across one! We saw one a day or two before, but it was very late in the day with poor light, and quite a distance from us. This was in late morning, with abundant, if harsh, light, and he was very obliging in posing for as long as we wanted to shoot!
