Absolute first time I've seen a Barred Owl up (relatively) close. I've since seen them but never with snow, a bit of evening light from the west or this still. Remains my favorite image of the species.
One of the more special moments I've seen with the bears in Shenandoah National Park. Mom had seen me about 5 minutes before, watched me diligently and knew I wasn't going to invade her space. Still, she watched me while her cubs played.
