Tucson, AZ - 05 Dec 2022
This was quite a treat - a Great Horned Owl free to fly in desert. This was at the Sonoran Desert Museum in Tucson on a drizzly day. They have a bird show where they allow the birds to fly in the desert with the tourists standing in the middle of the area - it is a very large area. This guy landed near a chain cholla cactus. While it was damp it was great light on the desert - open aperture and bump ISO to allow a fast shutter speed. I was using the 100-500 lens so it was easy to get close.
