I'm not a wildlife photographer. I don't like chasing animals through the wilderness; being cold, being hot, being wet . . . you get the picture. However - if the animals come to me - well, I might put out some minimal effort on their behalf.
While outside tending to the pool in the backyard, I happened to look up to see a magnificant Great Horned Owl hangin out in the palm tree next to the cement pond. It was smallish - probably a juvenile - but he allowed me to setup my wimberly mount and my 400mm lens to photograph him. :-)
