    At 11:30pm this evening, our "ever vigilant" dog ran downstairs and was barking as though someone was trying to break into the house. I listened intently, but believed that it may have just been a car door closing nearby. As I continued to listen, I heard what may have been an owl...or a dove on steroids. I threw on some clothes and went downstairs to peek outdoors to find two huge Great Horned Owls on my neighbors television antenna. I ran to get my gear and got this shot.....

    Thanks everyone....this image is certainly not artwork, but it sure was fun to see the two perched on top of my neighbor's antenna. I think that I have to attach my Better Beamer each night before bed!:redface:
