Long-eared Owl

Long-eared Owl! Last winter I came across an area in Brooklyn Park, MN where I encountered a number of Long-eared Owls sitting in trees and occasionally flying around and hunting for food. This particular Owl was most cooperative, looking right at me and posing perfectly. It was a magical moment.
