I have never been to able to get any shot of these guys. Some flash would have helped in your case.

Actually, the danger of using flash in this situation is that it will reflect of the leaves infront of the owl and that will look fairly bad. If there were fewer leaves a flash would have helped (it would have given the owl red-eye, but that is correctable.)

If you lightened this up a little bit in the editor it might look better. But I'm a big fan of owns (this is often how I see Barred Owls) so I'm no stranger to shots like this one.

I also think you should be happy to have found it, as Barred owls are not the easiest to find.

Congratulations on capturing the bird that I'm hoping to get a chance at one day.

I did lighten the pic in photoshop. here it is untouched. I was way to far away to use flash.

I saw two owls the other day but this one was in the shadows and the leaves in front of it were in the sun.

Actually I think its very good. It captures the mood of the forest where these guys live, dark, secretive and mysterious. Its a great shot of the bird in its true habitat.
