Great photo; I'd think that's a sight not often seen even by the most observant walker in the woods.

That's quite an intimidating glare.

Ed. note: The light was low due to the overcast skies so the photo is not as vivid as I would have liked. Although this was taken in the afternoon, the best shot was this one - taken from the east facing west. While the owl was facing west when I first approached, it was very accomodating for this shot - it swiveled its head 180 degrees.

Let me be somewhat modest about the opportunity for the shot: the fledgling was perched on a branch arching over the upper dune trail. I was alerted to the owl by a hiker going in the opposite direction a mile and a half from that point.
