Desert Ghost
Great Horned Owl
Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, Tucson, Arizona
The Arizona Sonora Desert Museum conducts predator free flights. In these sessions trained predators respond to the commands of their handlers. No teathers are used. This beautiful great horned owl swooped in silence just a few feet over my head and landed on a cactus stalk 12 meters from where I was standing. In between heart palpitations and rapid breathing, I was able to remember to take this picture.
