Great Horned Owl, California, USA by Parham Pourahmad

I was doubtful about seeing owls 3 hours before sunset, as I thought that they would be sleeping. However, as I hiked up the hill, I saw this juvenile great horned owl perching about 5 feet above the ground. At first I approached from below, making sure that the owl didn't feel pressure to fly. After the first few moments letting the owl get used to me, I started clicking.
