We released this very special barred owl yesterday. he arrived in october with 2 broken legs and spinal trauma. he had surgery to repair the broken legs and spent over 5 months in rehab. now, after receiving the best of care from @carolinaraptor he is once again flying free! 💗 #carolinaraptorcenter#birdsmatter#yearofthebird
This is still one of my favorite pictures i took at @brookercreekpreserve .
here we have an eastern screech owl. the thing i love about this shot is that the background was far enough away that it looks black. the owl was on a small patch of sunlight early morning, creating a very isolated subject.
