While photographing in the Sonora Desert, I saw this great horned owl perched on a limb in the distance. I sat down in a wash upwind of him and waited to see if he would fly. Luckily, he took off into the wind, straight toward me. He immediately screeched and banked away from me. I was able to get off a few frames, with this image being the best one.
