This Great Horned owl was part of a lecture on raptors at Hawk Mountain (in Pennsylvania). It came from a treatment center for injured birds at Penn State University. All the birds were too injured to be returned to the wild. This one was on a leash and being held against an all white background. I thought the white looked fake, so I replaced it with a shot of the sky.
