I saw this burrowing owl sitting on a perch in a small park in Cape Coral. These owls are quite abundant in the area and I was trying to figure out a way to photograph this owl in a different way. I wanted a portrait that accentuated the eyes and the green grass behind it. So I waited until right before the sun set to get some color and hoped the owl would not fly off. Luckily, he sat and posed nicely.
