That is a Great Horned Owl that I spotted one evening on our walk along the river. Aileen is holding the flashlight on the owl as I use my phone to capture the photo. Those are snowflakes not star trails. It would have been a great shot if I had my big camera and 100-400 zoom lens as I could have filled the frame but that camera and lens are too heavy to pack on a regular basis when there is a very low chance of using it.
These lights are on a sculpted cedar hedge covered in snow.
After I shovelled our driveway and along in front of our lot before the plough truck came by. Close to a foot deep.
And that evening.
