A short one

Went on a short walk this morning, didn't see much, walked some hiking trails in a local state park and seen the usual cardinals, crows, and assortment of sparrows and finches. It was a good day, sunny and warm with a slight breeze, Just as we were driving out of the park I spied a barred owl perched in a sapling off the side of the road, naturally I had to try to snap a couple pictures with my meteokre camera. After a few shots he started to get ansy and got ready to take off so my dad let out a couple squeaks that drew his attention and kept him a while longer for a couple more shots and we continued home. The last 5 minutes of the trip was the best, go figure :)

Here are a couple shots of the trip.

Great bird to finish the day with!!!
Sir, there be many men that are by others taken to be serious and grave men, whom we contemn and pity. Men that are taken to be grave, because nature hath made them of a sour complexion; money getting men, men that spend all their time, first in getting, and next, in anxious care to keep it; men that are condemned to be rich, and then always busy or discontented: for these poor rich-men, we Anglers pity them perfectly.
