A couple of weeks ago while taking one of my daughters out for some driving practice on the backroads, I got the chance to witness a wildlife interaction between a great gray owl and a whitetail deer. This doe passed right in front of the perched owl. Both watched each other as if to say, "Howdy neighbor! How are you this evening?"
Before the deer came along I was hoping to get a shot of the owl looking at me, but to no avail. As the owl finished watching the deer pass by to his left, he finished turning his head to take a quick glance behind in my direction. Just long enough for one quick photo and confirmation that he's a great gray owl. I owe that helpful doe a thank you. :)
Further down the road we got to see several more owls, of which I got more photos. I'll share some of those pics in a separate post, as I have more sorting to do first. Soon! :)

Wow! That is a shot of a lifetime, the owl and the doe together! I've only seen one great gray owl and that was at Lee Metcalf a few years back. They are magnificent!
