Skywatch

I was doing moon shots one evening at Shenandoah National Park, and this wonderful owl flew into my picture. Bless him!

Decided to skip baby album for today, and post a skywatch. This was taken last summer in Florida - at Cape Canaveral National Seashore..

The chance sight of the owl flying in front of a full moon must be a once-in-a-lifetime happening. And to increase the odds, the camera was set and waiting. Marvelous photo.

Wonderful...I always knew that owls and all birds fly directly out of my shots and all of nature flies directly into your shots....true!!!
