    I hear owls at night all the time, but having lived here since 2001, this is the first time I have actually seen one out and about!!
    I was so excited, just had to go out and take it's picture. It heard me taking the pictures, and turned it's head and looked right at us. Is this cool or what?

    And looked right at us!

    What a wonderful idea. I think owls are so cool. One winter when we lived in Michigan, we saw a beautiful baby snow owl. Here in Florida we hear them a lot.

    You might be thrilled with the result if you research it and give it a try. It is easy to get the photo onto fabric with the right software and the inkjet transfer kits. I use Print Artist software and Avery T-Shirt Transfers. I buy the transfers at WM because they are so much cheaper there than at Jo Ann.

    He is so beautiful. We have a woods behind our house and I have heard a big one several nights in a row but have not seen him yet. How precious to actually see one in your front yard. Thank you for posting the pics!

    Wonderful pictures. They hide so well in the tree I have only seen mine one time and that was in flight.

    I love owls too. They are hard to spot though. I'm keeping my chihuahua in the house for awhile....

    That is so cool! Every once in a while we will hear one or two at night. We haven't heard them in a while. I like to hear them though.

    Ohh, I misunderstood you! I thought you meant making one of those where they take the photo and reproduce it from fabric like the portraits. The other I might could manage. Smiles

    I looked it up and my facebook friend agrees that my visitor is a Barred Owl.

    That's a beautiful owl and a fabulous picture. How exciting that must have been for you. I would have been thrilled beyond words. I get excited when I see a woodpecker at the feeder!
