I captured this shot of this long eared owl outside of Madras Oregon and yes it was day time. When I left I am sure the owl went back to sleep? Feel free to download a free watermarked sample of this image to see what the unwatermarked purchased image will look like before making that choice! I do photography full time and have thousands of images I am getting up on this computer as time permits. Contact me with any questions you may have at my website. Thank you for looking!
