Today’s Photo Of The Day is “One Of The Greats” by Michael Morse. Location: Roberts, Idaho.
“This great horned owl was perched on a snow-covered branch waiting for the morning sun to heat up the frozen Idaho landscape,” says Morse. “This photo is one of my favorites from this past year that I was able to capture. It was the middle of January and temps were around -15 below zero. The great horned owls were very active as they were still in hunting mode as the morning sun was trying to burn off a thick fog. This owl flew in and landed no more than 15 feet from us and sat perched on a snow-covered branch. I really liked how there were some yellow leaves still in the frame with those yellow eyes. This was just a fun day as this was the first trip my kids wanted to go out with me to look for owls as well, which just made the trip that much better.”
