Barn Owl and Roseate Spoonbill

After not being successful in seeing the Roseate Spoonbill in Holmes County, I was fortunate to get photos of the one in Wayne County. I had some taxi customers that were hoping to see the bird. And we were very successful.  A birder friend wanted to know the whereabouts of barn owls in Holmes County, so I did some research and actually found a male that posed nicely for me. I also had some nice conversation in the landowners living room!

A nice sunny morning to hang out the laundry to dry!  If you look at the close-up you can see my Aunt on the porch and my Uncle between the laundry on the line and the porch! Makes me wish I would have used my telephoto lens for a clearer shot!
