The Outlook

A wet great grey owl looking out from an evergreen tree

One Saturday evening, it was forecasted to rain the entire night. Knowing this causes difficulty for owls to hunt during the night and a possible delay into the daytime; I set out to photograph a local great grey owl at sunrise. On the morning, dark grey clouds rolled in and cast down rain the entire day. To my amazement, I saw two great grey owls, with the second landing on a spruce branch to my right just three meters away!
