"Wise Young Owl"
I captured this image of an immature Great Horned Owl near Potter's Marsh outside of Anchorage, Alaska. You can still make out a few tufts of its downy feathers around his head and body, though most of the adult plumage has come in during the summer. I first spotted this particular owl in flight, then captured the image when it landed on a dead tree trunk.
