Day 2 of PhotoWild was just as wonderful.  The most special thing happened  during the flight portion; a wild Great Horned owl flew in to visit her captive boyfriend.  She was absolutely gigantic!  It happened incredibly fast and I didn’t get a photo of her, but I count myself lucky to have seen a wild Great Horned Owl.  Not many people can say they have.  This is a photo I took of Mattie, the Great Horned Owl.  I spent a lot of time photographing her, and most of the other photographers were in other spots.  She was absolutely breathtaking as she moved to get to the highest point on this perch.  You can see all of the photos of day 2 HERE.
