Owlie.
 
This image of the Great Horned Owl at the Teton Raptor Center has definitely been one of my favorites from 2018. We took our workshop group to the TRC and were rewarded with some fantastic photographic opportunities. It was the first time I was able to shoot with the Tamron 100-400mm lens, and even better, shoot it on my new Nikon D-850. It revealed to me the incredible sharpness of the lens and super resolution of the camera. The combination is perfect. Owlie was fantastic and loved posing for us. We are taking our group again this year and will be photographing in a historic location with the birds. Just another reason to love the Grand Tetons and the surrounding area! The folks at the TRC are absolutely fantastic folks and their work is so important in the area as well.

Owlie, the Great Horned Owl.
 
One of the beautiful birds we photographed while we visited the Teton Raptor Center was this Great Horned Owl. Hopefully my memory is correct and its name is Owlie, named by a child, but I like it. This bird is another one of their educational birds, meaning it can’t be released into the wild, but will serve as an educational ambassador to all of us. Becky, the handler/educator, obviously has a great relationship with the birds as they respond to her very well. It was more than a few times that Owlie would “hoot” at her and they would have little conversations with each other. I have said on numerous times, please support your local centers, even better make sure you take a kid to one, so they can learn about these beautiful animals and hopefully they will do one thing that will help protect them while in the wild.
