Short-eared Owl on Marker 12

Short-eared Owl on Marker 12

I was shooting at the refuge on Jan. 4, 2013, waiting for a Red-tailed Hawk to fly from its perch when this Short-eared Owl landed on a speed limit sign about 200 feet in front of me.  Another car drove by the owl and caused it to fly to this marker which was about a hundred feet from me.  I had been looking for this owl for weeks since several other refuge photographers had seen it and photographed it recently.  Canon 5D Mark III, 1/1250, f5.6, ISO 2500, Canon 400mm f5.6L lens.
