Default Great Horned Owl

This was the crown jewel of my photo outing today. I have never been able to get any decent shots of an owl. Well, today was pay day. As I was driving around the refuge I spotted this Great Horned Owl sitting in a Willow tree facing the road and there were no obstruction to my view. I ripped off about 100 shots at various settings and here are some of the best.
