This was a difficult shot for me to get. I saw the Barred Owl fly to this tree, but he was surrounded by little branches and my I couldn’t focus on the owl because of all the branches. I rarely use manual focus because I don’t think my photos come out clear enough. So, I moved a few steps to my right and when the owl look at me, I zoomed as far as my camera would allow and focused on his eye. I was so happy when everything came into focus.
