Great Gray Landing

A wild great gray owl returns to its perch after hunting the fields of a ranch near Jackson, WY. Spending a few days photographing this magnificent creature up close is an experience I'll never forget. Took my breath away every time it went to the air. You'd expect a bird this big (all of 30 inches tall) to make a bunch of noise when the wings come out, but it's absolutely silent. That's why they call it the gray ghost...
