A Great Gray owl was circling a field about 100 yards away looking for a field mouse dinner when I captured this with my old Canon A1 (SLR) and a 500mm Mirrored lens (2 tripods used). I dug this out of my archived negatives and scanned it in at 9600x9600 for this high-res copy (9 MB). Captured this near Blair, Nebraska in March of 1992. Inspired to upload this by ViewBug member Kathy from New Mexico.
