Florida Screech Owl

IMG_2549

I shot this Florida Screech Owl last night at the in-laws.  It was in a tree in their front yard and remained there through several flash shots.  The only camera I had with me was the Canon 110 I keep in the car console for just such occasions.  Again, my No.1 equipment axiom: the best camera for the job is the one you have with you when the picture needs taking.  Surprisingly, it allowed me to shoot several flash shots from a distance of about 2 feet.  The Screech is the smallest of Florida owls.  This one was about 7 – 8″ tall.
