One night after feeding the horses, I was shutting the pasture gate and looked up to see this small eastern screech owl perched on a small limb along the path where the horses headed down to the lower pasture. The branch was so small I was surprised it even held this bird up. I ran to get my camera and he was still there when I returned. I was thrilled to get to see this little guy, and only few feet away. A sculpture was the next thing I had to do to capture the moment.
