linrose, that is a beautiful photo of the barred owl.
I really like how the surrounding twigs and tree branch with lichen add to the owl image.
I can just imagine how the talon feet are holding on behind that branch.

I've already complemented disuhan on the photo of the clearwing caterpillar,
but it bares repeating, great photo with the gentle arches and colors of the caterpillar and the plant echoing each other.
( My spelling auto correct keeps trying to turn disuhan into dishpan. Don't you just hate it when that happens, especially if you don't catch the error and post.)

I can see both on the 2015 calendar, hint.

People don't always catch the autospell when they are typing. I've learned to figure out what they meant. My brother uses voice texting and it spells his daughters name wrong. I wondered in the beginning why he was spelling her name wrong.

Thanks will-o, I like the lichens too. I posted more photos including the talons of this owl here ~Avian Photography~ Post your bird pix!

I couldn't get enough enjoyment, or photos of this owl encounter!

Yes! From a distance that cat looks like the leaves from which it is perched! How in the world did you ever discover that!

Speaking of perched... Linrose you lucky girl you! To have been seen and have that owl sit like that for you to take shots of must have been a truly awesome experience!!!!

Mine used to do that too (dishpan)...but now it has learned the spellings and many WG screen names now come up in autocorrect! The first time that happened, it kind of freaked me out--it seemed a little too much like artificial intelligence.

Funny, I was thinking the same thing. Maybe one could grace the cover.

All of my shrubs are still in pots (hopefully not for much longer), so I regularly inspect them to make sure they're doing alright. I noticed immediately someone denuded my entire Viburnum lentago seedling, like within a day or two. I was determined to find out who it was.

I wondered the same thing. I inspect plants that are eaten but never find the insect.

I have not been able to focus on photographing much these days. Been busy! Here's something different, from a September past. In 2008, we took a trip out to explore Utah and it's amazing geological features. This photo was captured in Fruita, UT which is a settlement within Capitol Reef National Park. This orchard remains and is taken care of by the NPS as a historic landscape.
