This photo was taken in Shenandoah National Park, Virginia. I have seen Eastern Screech-Owls when hiking in the park, but have never been able to get a portrait shot. Finally, during an educational program presented at Big Meadows, this owl, that had been previously injured, rescued and rehabilitated, but was non-releasable back to the wild, willingly posed long enough during the educational program for me to capture this portrait.

Excellent capture. The owl is very sharp and in focus, and the photographer has nice catch lights in the it’s eyes which are looking right at you. Overall very nicely done!
