As I was driving along PA 915 between two stretches of State Forestry road a large bird swooped across the roadway landing on an upright snag. Fortunately the berm was wide enough that I had room to saftely pull the car off the roadway.
The owl watched me intently while I clicked the shutter rapidly. I only captured two images. By the third shot all I caught was tail feathers of a rapidly departing bird.
Encountering these birds of the night is extremely rare. I feel that I have been very fortunate to have had two separate encounters in the last two months with both resulting in successful photographs.
