Owls still fascinate me wherever my camera may take me. I will never get tired of searching for these varied birds of prey. Whatâ€™s amazing about owls is the fact that they live among us, but are seldom seen. The park right across from my house has quite an owl population that few people ever get to see. There are great-horned owls, barred owls, and screech owls living only feet from peopleâ€™s everyday life, and the average person may never see one.
