19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Tawny in the Fall

After the sun set this Tawny Owl decided to go hunting in the fall. I was just to about pack up my gear when I saw this beauty. It was almost too dark to focus and I did not think I could use the image. But back home on my screen I was very surprised.
