The Owl

It took me six months to get a photograph of the Great Horned Owl, and it isn't great, but here he is.

I think this is why my weather vane leans.  We usually enjoy this bird, but on the night of the wolf moon, I was having visions of Owl Fricassee.  And I don't even eat meat!  I don't know if the moon had him stirred up, but he was loud and fierce.  It sounded like a very angry owl was in the room with us.

The coyotes were active this morning too.  They were within 10 feet of the house at daybreak, and they had a good yip-off while I was cleaning stalls.
