This is the owl that lives in our backyard, he's been around for a couple of years now. He usually appears at dusk, and we can hear him making various screetching noises after dark. This afternoon I got a surprise visit, so I crept up to the window to try and take his photo. I have other photos of him, but this is the closest I've ever gotten. He looked right into my eyes before turning away. Pretty cool, huh?
